    Yup. Put some paper towel down in the box if it has a bottom so they don't slip on the cardboard and suffer splayed legs. If it's a bottomless box, they'll love the grass.

    How long can they be outside like that? I'm guessing no more than about 15-20 minutes? I don't want them to get chilly. [​IMG]
