well today I moved my three 5 week old BR chicks out to the big coop, finally finished it! When it started to get dark they were making quite a fuss, I closed them in the coop with a solar light and they calmed down. Checked on them at 8:30pm, all sleeping in a pile in one corner. then at 9:40 there was a 5.7 earthquake just east of where I live! everything was shaking for 15-20 seconds. My poor little girls, their first night in a strange coop and the whole world starts rocking. They seemed okay when I went out and checked on them- but certainly not asleep any more! I think they will be fine, but we are all a little "shaken"
