I have 4 silkie chickens. My question is does my silkie chicken coop need a light? I live in CO US and it gets cold here. Thanks :)?

Will they need a heat light at night in the coop? I heard that it can cause fires too, but the silkies are always cold.

I have them inside with a light and they are still cold. I think it is a 200 or 150 watt infrared light.
