    and I'm feeling GUILTY! We have been bringing them in the house to their brooder box until tonight. They had to go outside sooner or later but.... [​IMG] I feel awful! They were so scared [​IMG] I know in the AM they'll be happy to see me because tonight it was 15-20 minutes after dusk that I got home to put them in the new hut and they LET me pick them up!! Without chasing them!! This is something unheard of around here..it's ALWAYS a "chase the ducks to bring them in fiasco"....so I guess I'm not so bad after all...hehehe...better me than THE DARK!! [​IMG]
    I went out just a little while ago to check on them and they were all quiet so I guess they are ok ....How DO they survive in the wild with out us to worry about them?! [​IMG]

    [​IMG].. We all have to learn to cut the apron strings sometime.

    A few of my girls have been outside for the last two nights.. It was so hard- but I had to do it as I have others hatching and really just ran out of room. They have coped well out in the dark - and even though its winter here now - kept each other warm.
