    Tonight's our chicks first night out in the hen house. They are fully feathered and seem quite happy to have so much more space now but augh, it's going to get down to 46 tonight and they are going to be cold. I hope they remember to sit up on their roost out of the cold sand bedding and huddle for warmth! I'm sure they'll be fine but I am losing my mind worrying about their fuzzy little butts.
     
  2. I know what you mean.

    I had chickens years ago, but I still felt anxious when I put my little pullets out for the first time a few weeks ago.

    They should be fine...[​IMG]

    They will love the outdoors.
