    Hello everyone..my babies had their first dust bath yesterday.
    I didn't let them out long as it was only about 70 out.
    But lately it is like they want to go out ...even when it is about 60 out.
    I know I can let them out for a while but how long would you say is Too long???
    Thanks ya'll.

    If they get cold, they will let you know by high pitched peeping and huddling... [​IMG]

    They probably need around 80 degrees right now, so I would let them stay out max. 15 min. myself. When mama hens take them out they crouch on the ground to periodically warm them up.
