    Hi folks,

    My neighbors aren't home and around sunset I saw their hens squawking and wandering around their closed run/coop. I don't have their phone number, and now that it's dark I saw their hens found hiding spots around the yard to sleep for the night. It's supposed to go down to the mid-thirties tonight, do you think they'll be okay? I didn't want to go in their yard without their permission and it's far too late to do anything about it now. I'm worried about them!

    Temperature won't hurt them but a coon might get one
