    So, tonight is the night!

    My four girls are in their coop for good and I am a nervous wreck about it! They were peeping up a storm earlier and I felt bad because it has been stormy all afternoon and I thought they might be scared. But I have my bedroom window open and I don't hear them so I hope they are roosting and sleeping. I may go out and check on them later, if it stops raining!

    Please tell me they will be ok in the morning.

    If the coop is enclosed they will be fine. They probally miss their normal surroundings but they will be fine.

    Quote:Yep, they are in an enclosed coop that we surrounded with 1/2" hardware cloth. We also attached chicken wire to the bottom of the coop and covered that with about an inch of dirt. I hope this is enough to keep them safe.
