    I woke up this morning to the sound of high winds and trees bending over. I'm thinking the babies (8 week old chicks) need to stay in their coop today. What would y'all do?

    Our temps are around 55 so it isn't too cold but they are really young.

    Just like our kids, we have to do what we feel is right whether they like it or not...
