Although we still have to put on the vinyl siding, put together the exterior nesting boxes and build the run the coop was ready to be occupied. the chicks were getting to big for the brooder and i did not want to wait until they started fighting before moving them. they spent all day in the coop. I have the path to the coop lit with solar lights to make it easier to get there at night to check on them. I have already been out there tonight to check on them. he temp has dropped enough that i found them huddled together in a corner. my husband suggested a brooder box in the coop which we quickly put together.
I am nervous about tonight. if i am this bad with chickens how will i handle my children leaving home.
