Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! That's lovely to hear you have found BYC so helpful already. Those are some lovely breeds you have there. I know just what you mean about being ready for them go out to the coop, especially if your brooding in the house. At four weeks they can start to become a little dusty!! Not long now and they should be fully feathered and ready to go out to the coop.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Right now they're in our unfinished bathroom in a Rubbermaid container. It was like having a newborn last night, they kept waking me up! ūüėě

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Maybe they were too cold  - in a brooder their temp should be about 80 at floor level- for this age.  If they sleep piled up on each other  it means they are cold. Do you have a heat lamp for them?

They should be sleeping at night...is there a light on that's keeping them awake?

 

Hope you have your coop all ready for them, they should be ready to go out soon!
