    Greetings!
    38 degrees, brrr. They probably won't mind too much though, they are pretty cold hardy. :)

    everything is relative. We finally heated up to upper thirties after a few days with highs - 5 to -10, so we were sheltering. I had to wear my lightest jacket to shovel snow. I would think birds with their feather insulation wouldn't mind temps like that at all.

    Welcome to BYC. In a dry draft free coop, chickens can deal with extremely cold conditions.
