    Yesterday we decided to try them out in the coop and run. I have 2 pullets that are new to us in there. At first they decided to pick on the babies, so I shooed them out of the coop so the babies could find their way out of the door into the run. They spend the entire day in one corner of the run just playing and having a blast. At night I went in to catch them all and put them in the makeshift "in coop brooder" (dog kennel!) LOL I wanted somewhere safe for them to sleep at first so the girls don't pick on them. Put them to bed and walked away. After a while I freaked out and thought they would get too cold their first night out of the brooder and with no heat lamp, so I snatched them up and moved them to their real brooder! LOL They were sleeping fine, not even huddled, so not cold at all. I'm just a paranoid my real kids life too!
    So today, we tried again. Everyone got along much better. No more picking on the babies from the older girls. I had to leave to take my daughter to dance class, so I left them out and planned to come put them in the brooder when I got home since we are supposed to have our first freeze tonight. Get home, and I went out to check on them and my girls were in their usual sleeping spot roosting up on the coop light, and the chicks were all in the "in coop brooder" sleeping so sweetly! I felt so bad to wake them that I decided to bring them all in the house for a treat before I put them to bed in the brooder so they snacked on spinach leaves for a while.
    They are so stinkin sweet and they really are warming up to us. They didn't even poop on me tonight! [​IMG]

    OK, as requested, PICS!! They are now fully moved in.
