    Well our peepers are outside today. It feels like when you first put your baby in the nursery instead of the bassinet in your room. And to add to my chick worries, I think our BR hen is broody (we butchered the roo on Tuesday, so the eggs are fertle. I think I may let her have a go at it.

    Quote:They'll be back in at night, the foster agency doesn't allow chicks in the house (livestock), they don't allow bunnies as indoor pets either. So they're out during the day (90 degrees out) and in my room at night.
