Hi: Tonight it's -8C in Canada. I have 2 new Silkies as friends for my white full size bird. They love each other, and keep each other warm, but they seem to enjoy staying outside in this cold weather, instead of in their coop with a sun lamp. There is a wood shed, with a dedicated coop with warmed water, food, and a sunlamp. There is a hole that they go out and stay in the dog kennel. Sometimes the white bird will warm the babies. Why won't they stay near the sun lamp? I'm thinking of bringing them into the house into a dog crate. This is urgent. Thanks.

Thanks for your free advice. One of the Silkies froze to death last night. The two remaining hens are now in a dog crate in my slightly heated garage.
