Should chickens come in when it’s smoky?

I gave a flock of 6. 3 6yo and 3 pullets. It is very smoky outside and I was wondering if I should bring them inside? Or at least in the garage? (Sorry I’ve made so many posts lately a lot has been going on with my flock)

Do you have a tent? Many have set their birds up in the garage with pine shavings in the bottom of a tent. You can put some dirt in a box for a dust bath and a box with shavings as a nest box, and a 2x4 on two cinderblocks as a roost. You could probably put an old sheet down underneath the shavings if you want to avoid poop getting on the tent floor.
