Quick question ~ I am a new chick mommy... we currently have 7 babies~ The question is at what point should I take them outside for "play time" right now they spend their day inside as it is still getting pretty cold here at night ... Our new coop is in the process of being built. This picture was taken before the big man on top, we named him/her "Crazy", learned to climb up and OVER the top... now we have a mesh screen on top of the box and the heat lamp is attached higher and pointing down... They are a very happy bunch and get along well. I take them out for about 45 minutes a day (at 2 seperate times) and let them play... I have 2 children I want them to be used to... all my chick babies are pretty well mannered (except for the two black/striped ones) they have a very stand offish personality... My knowledge is pretty limited but my grandmother and mother in law have both raised chicks and are helping ... they both say all are healthy and happy. Our chicks came from Rural King and they good folks there were unsure of their age so I don't know how to judge that other than by their feathers. We purchased straight run so I also don't know who is a boy/girl... I am sure time shall tell! Any advice or help is greatly appreciated! Thanks! Chick mommy in KY!
