    My silkies are almost 7 weeks old. Temps during the day are anywhere from 60-75 (this past week we had a few 80's but it's back to 63 today) and at night it is around 50. I'd like to get them in the coop with the others that are 10 weeks old so they get to know each other before it gets too far along. Is it still too cold for them or will they be ok?

    i would put them in the coop about 8 weeks because then why there growing up they will know their food and water and they will start laying about 6 to 7 months.
