    I have a chick/chicken that I got last week. The guy working was a volunteer, so I guess he was just guessing that she was a month old. I think she may be a little older. My question is, tonight it will be low to mid 20s out. Should I bring her inside?

    Mmmm, I'm voting yes, or at least make some efforts to keep her warm. But then, I am a bit or a worry wart.

    That chick looks way older than one month.

    This was my thought too. I'm fairly new to chickens, raised one group from babies but don't really remember how old they were at this stage

    If it is fully feathered, which it is, there is no reason to warm it up even if it is 20 outside...or less. Chickens do just fine in the cold weather. As long as they have a well ventilated, and yet draft free shelter.
