    we have 30 CX of which 25 are 5 weeks old and 5 are 4 weeks old and all mostly feathered out. They have been in our insulated barn since I took their heat away a few weeks ago. I moved our chicken tractor(made of a chain link 10ftx10ft dog kennel, chicken wire, and tarps.). I live in Michigan and the temps have been in the upper 60’s during the day and low to mid 40’s at night. 25 of them were piled up in one corner tonight and 5 snuggling in another corner. They were not overly loud but pretty bunches up. Are they going to be ok? I’m worried since they are usually more spread out in the barn. Thanks for the help!!
