    Just make sure it is sunny and they have an area to escape to the shade.
    Temps should be warm in the upper 70's and 80's.
    They won't "freeze" but if they're all huddled tightly together and not moving, they're probably too cold and should be brought back inside.
    Don't stress too much about it tho, since momma hen would have had her chicks outside in way colder temps.
