    I got 2 light sussex chickens around 21 weeks old and i live in southern Sweden where we get cold winters (about -10°C/ 14°F/ 263 K.
    So i was wonderring if anyone knows how much cold light sussex can take. I got them in a big greenhouse with everything they need.

    14F isn't too bad. Sussex are pretty well feathered and hardy.

    Keep them dry, out of the wind, with good ventilation in the coop, and they'll be fine.

    Pics of your coop and run would help folks make suggestions.

    They are in a big greenhouse. So there will not be any wind or rain on them. I have putted a big box where they can sleep on their stick and put some hay here and there
