It's so gorgeous out there today! When I get done work at two, I'm going to let the chickens out and work on the run and finish the coop. And of course we will have a little free ranging fun with the ladies! My parents gave me a miter saw that they bought and never used. I can't wait to get started!! A miter saw will make the job so much easier! Any tips?
Also, I know I asked this before, but when is it a good time to let the hens stay outside permanently? I think it was Lisa who said when it stays above 40* at night consistently, but i can't remember the rest. They are about 6-7 weeks old now and are well feathered and getting nice and fluffy now so I think they will be good to go soon. Just looking for pointers.
Pitch em out. They'll be fine now as long as they have a secure coop at night & can huddle together. My 3-6 week olds are off heat & only in the garage in wire cages. Gets just as cold out there as outside when the lamps are off.
