Help can my chicks live outside yet? - Page 2

post #11 of 14

The chicks will be happy to be in a coop with more room. Yes, they will freak out at first because it's new. But they will settle in quick. I'm a new chick mama too, but had chickens my whole childhood until I flew the coop (haha). I just moved my 4 1/2 week old chicks out to their coop. I made sure to move them out mid-day so they had plenty of time to get settled in before night. Our temps got down to 38 their first night out there. No light, no heating pad... just each other. They are all fine this morning and running around like little monsters and just having a ball with all the extra room.

Thank you all so much!! The girls went outside today! I put them in the coop this morning and let them get aquainted with it for a couple hours. Then I opened the chicken door into the run where they are all now happily chirping and scratching about!

Be careful.  With their new crib, the next thing you'll know is that they're throwing a big block party!!!! :D

Job 27:3-6   All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils;  My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit.  God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.  My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.
