Hello! I just put my 6 eight week old chicks outside in their coop for the first time, and it's not going well. The 4 Buffs seem just fine, and are perched on top of the crate (the inside of the coop isn't quite done but they are safe and secure inside the run with a dog crate). The silkies on the other hand are out there bawling. I had to lock them inside the crate for the night b/c they kept pacing and jumping all around. I think they want to cuddle with the others, but the don't want to go inside. What to do! I guess they will just have to deal with it. Are silkies just a little more spastic than other breeds?
