My babies are spending their first night outside in the coop tonight! They weren't too happy with me at first, but they finally calmed down. We put up a windbreak with a doorway to the enclosed section of the coop, and added a 100-watt bulb in a fixture. The temp was 85 earlier, but has been slowly dropping. I am a bit worried it won't stay warm enough for them overnight. (Supposed to get down in the lower 60's) So I cleaned their indoor cages and got them all ready in here, just in case. Only reason we were going to try the campout tonight was that we get up at 6:30am to get ready for choir practice before church on Sundays. It's all we can do to get ourselves ready and out the door by 7:45am, so we figured if they could stay outside, we wouldn't have to take the extra time to move them. (Of course I would give fresh food and water before we left.) So we'll see what happens! For those of you who keep your chickens outdoors, when did you start having the chicks do overnights outdoors? Mine are just over 2 weeks old, so they still need a steady 85 degrees.
