    We bought the wood to build our own coop but the weather has not been cooperating with us. Its been cold and verry wet out the past couple weeks. My babies are only a few days old and we quickly found out they do not like it if shut the heat lamp off or attempt to move the brooder lol they become verry loud if we shut it off or try to move it lol kinda funny how they were in our home less than 12hrs and already "barking orders" lol

    They are demanding aren't they. Hopefully the weather will dry out and you can begin construction. They will need the heat lamp for a while longer just make sure there is enough room for them to get away from the heat and they will self regulate their temperature. Do you know what kind of chicks they are yet?

    G’Day from down under newmom13660 [​IMG] Welcome & Congratulations; they are adorable!

    If you have not already checked it out, I recommend a visit to the Learning Centre; lots of good tips there: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    When they are older and fully feathered, you can post some pictures on this Forum if you would like some opinions on breed and gender: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    Good luck!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
