    Awwwhh! So cute! Love it when they are still fuzzy butts and so small. My latest brood is just over 2 weeks old and I can't take them out right now - way too cold. Supposed to snow tomorrow even! Enjoy those beauties. [​IMG]

    I'm new to chickens as of last weekend, have 8 little ones of various ages. I was hoping to take them outside for a while this weekend but it's too cold here!

    I agree.
    Last night I had a 2 week old chick get out and ran off into the woods.
    It came back this morning and is with mom again.
    It was 36 last night - no ill effects.
