    Long story short. She is setting in grass, one hatched this morning. I built a safe cage for them outside, but should I bring them in the garage in nights? Since it's colder and probably going to rain tommorow, I don't want the chick getting too cold, plus another chick is pipping right now under her.
    Should I bring them in tommorow night then?

    How cold is it by you? It wouldn't hurt to bring them in the garage. I'd just keep them in all the time until the chicks are old enough to scurry around with mom, maybe a week.
