    So, I finally got the chicks coop all done and the run up and I put my 8 week olds out there in the run for the day and they love it, but I am kinda blue about them living outside 24/7...... I am gonna miss them in the house.

    Anybody else go thru this? I know I'm nuts, no need to point that out.

    Also, they won't go in the coop anyway unless I put them in there.

    just think - no more dust in the house. And you can go visit them all ya want outside at their house.

    The answer to that is to raise more in the house. [​IMG]

    That's my vote too. I felt the same way when ours moved out. I did like less dusting though. [​IMG]

    Awwww....they are so very cute- I understand. Quite a pretty assortment. You could still have them spend the night indoors untill all of you get used to the arrangement. (Umm, not that I do this myself, ahem..)
