    Default Extreme weather

    My Teenie family ( the four flyers) are not used to cage life; they are fulltime , freestyle out on the squirrel porch. Today /tonight itís supposed to be brutal . They are predicting power outages . They have a warm nest and I have all the drop cloths down. But should I bring them in anyhow? Is it worse for a wild to jump from teens outside to 70 inside? I have a heat lamp out there as well, but itís not guaranteed to last. This is miserable for MS

    Iím not sure which is worse....staying out in the cold or adjusting to indoor temps? What I have observed with my wilds is that when they feel itís too cold or windy out, they stay in their nest boxes or dreys. I would think that flyers would do the same. Do they have fleece or wool scraps in their boxes or cubes? Do they sleep together? I think the combined warmth of all of them would be enough to keep them warm, but Iím certainly no expert on cold since I live in Florida.
