    I have a Silky that was hatched on 8/7 and was wondering if maybe i needed a brooder lamp? To keep her warm since its a little cold in the coop. I have Straw stuffed down in the cage too keep her warm but I'm still worried about it. Any suggestions? Any would be good to relieve my mind.

    She should be fine without heat

    If you see her shivering or becoming inactive, I would recommend heat. But as said above, she should be fine.
