I am a "newbie" and the winter is starting here in MA. I have 4 younger silkies (3-8 months old), and 2 days ago took a silkie mom, her week old chick and her fertile eggs home. The 4 silkies huddle together in the coop, but the mom will not leave the brood box with the eggs and her baby. I am so scared that without huddling with the others she and her baby are going to freeze to death. I was thinking of doing the snugglesafe in the egg box, or possibly taking her inside for the winter. Any suggestions would be appreciated....I am an absolute nervous wreck right now!!
