They will be fine. Do it the night before, or before daylight. Be sure they have screened ventilation. Heat is the only thing you need to worry about. If they cannot control the air flow, they will cook in a matter of minutes.

thanks! Glad I asked. I was gonna cut some 2x to block the entrances. Bad idea. Ill roll up some screen to width instead.

to answer your question.... days and weeks but never months.

shade cloth or even some black fabric screen helps with the heat as does sprinkling with water.
