    Aaaaww! They look alot like my group! I put them out at about five and a half weeks, and it immediately got pretty cold. They did very well, and I'm sure yours will too! They look happily perched!

    I always tell people to watch the birds. They speak to you thru their actions. The birds are telling you they are very contented on their roost in their new digs. I see contented chickens that will do just fine tonight.

    So cute!

    Nothing beats MY contentment when I peek into my girls' coop at night and see them all roosting in a row [​IMG]

    fully feathered and 80*...they will do perfectly. I turned the heat off my girls at 2 days old actually, it was this summer when it was so hot...they did great, they haven't had added heat or light since. It is now 20* at night, and they are 26 weeks...3 are 17 weeks...all doing great!

    went down this morning to check on them and they were all up and happy! yayyy! [​IMG] they're out in their run now, so hopefully it wont get too cold for them this week, i dont feel its necessary to put a source of heat in the coop.
