Baby Chicks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

WE want to put our new chicks in a fenced area,during the day then back inside at nite(they are about 1month old)any suggestions.

post #2 of 5

Just make sure the chicks can't squeeze through the fence. At a month old, they may be feathered in enough to stay out full time.

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

If your temps are still cold,  I would keep them in till they are FULLY feathered out.  Then you could put in coop with pop door open, so they could go in and out to the run by themselves as they want. At dusk they should be locked into the coop, and put on roost bars  before lights out.
