    WooHoo! My babies all went into the 'coop' part of the chicken tractor before dark. Its amazing that the little things know what to do. I turn on their 60 watt black light for about an hour before sunset and then turn it off so its nice and warm for the night. Such little loves!

    Congrats to you!

    That is no easy feat. I have been working with my 7 week olds for 3 weeks and I think they "got it" tonight.
