ready to leave the nest!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Chicks are a couple days shy of 7 weeks... Low temps at night are 38... Too cold? Also when i first move them to the coop, do they need to be locked in there for a couple days? Or is it okay to allow them in the attached run during the day?? I know they need to get used to their 'home'... Thank you!!

I let mine go outside if they want, just expect to have to round them up. Your chicks should be okay, they should pile, just keep the drafts down.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
