    my babies are out in their coop. They are about 7 weeks old. Since I put them in their coop 2 weeks ago I have been the one putting them up at night. Tonight DH and I had some runs to make. I called DD and told her we were running late and she would have to put the chickens and ducks up. A little bit later she called to say something was wrong with the babies. She said after she ran them in from the run they huddled by the door in a big chicken ball and wouldnt move. I told her to turn the light on since I usually put them up way before dark. She did that and they still hung at the door. I got home shortly after that and went out to check them. When I walked in they came running away from the pop door and went over to get something to eat and drink. Guess they were scared cause I didnt put them up. They love me! [​IMG]
