    My keets had a little too much fun today playing in the rain which concerns me greatly. I finally convinced them to go into the coop but they are only a little over 2 months old and didn't get a chance to dry off before bed. Do they need to come in the house for the night? Or are they pretty hardy at this age? I would just die if I lost them!
     
  2. Being wet is a keets biggest problem. Put them in an enclosed crate for the night.

    Put in grass hay if you have it. If you have 4 or more they will huddle.

    Kept drafts off them.

    Ehhhh at 8+ weeks mine are on their own. If it rains, they'd better find somewhere to go or they get wet [​IMG]
