    I was wondering what your temps are at night and do you have a light on them in the coop? Mine are 6 weeks old and I want to move them to the coop ASAP. The dust is covering my garage.

    what do you do for beaksy?

    Beaksy's beak has been this way since she arrived. I too was concerned that she would not be able to eat well, however she does just fine. As I have handled her from arrival, I am hoping to be able to use an emery board to file it correctly and "train" it into position.

    I was wondering what your temps are at night and do you have a light on them in the coop?

    I moved them to the outside coop last Saturday, when it was almost 60 here in New Hampshire - then Monday and Tuesday the temps dropped to 24 and 28 with a disgustingly high wind. The girls have (2) 250 watt red lights, as I have this fear that if one burns out they might get chilled. Now because Grammy (I am 39 and grammy is my Mom [​IMG] ) was concerned, they have two heat lamps and a regular 60w light.

    Here are a few more of the girls...
