I currently have four -7/8 week old silkies that have been in my house at 70 degrees. Would you feel comfortable moving them to a coop where it's 60s during the day and 30s at night ? I'm so nervous about this... I don't want them to die if I move them outside. Based on age they should be ready but what do you think ? Any suggestions ?

I'm no expert, but if it's possible, you may wish to consider adding a heat source in the coup, and then begin gradually weaning them off it. Either way, if you see your chickens huddling together, they are cold, if they are up to normal chicken antics, then they are fine. This is possibly the best indicator to use.

Good luck
