HI folks. I am leaving my 3 wk old chicks..10 of them out for the first time tonight. I have been leaving them out in their run for the day time for the past week. They do so love it out there where the can run about. It rained here today for about 20 mins....and it came on so quickly that I could not get them out of the run and into the house without getting them more wet than if I left them, but did go out and check with my umbrella..ha..and they were in their house all huddled together and dry...just waiting it out. I know they are a little young to be out there on their own, but I live in south Georgia. It is in the 90s during the day here and goes down to mid 70s at night. The house and run are fenced and the whole thing is inside of a fenced area. I think about the only thing that could get to them would be a sneaky snake, but other than that, I believe they are secure. They are well feathered even at this young age. New Hampshire reds...hens all. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
