    Hi there!

    I am Gramma and inherited the Easter chicks as they became to big for the house. ; )

    I must say that this was planned and not done with selfish disregard to the chickens. My son built a wonderful hen house for our three and so far so good!

    Could use all the good advice I can get for a 1st time owner. These will be pet chickens and NOT for dinner. Eggs if we are lucky.

    Thanks!

    Hi Gramma, welcome to BYC!

    If you inherited the EE's from your grandkids, I hope they are helping take care of them (a little help with coop cleaning is always nice, lol). Kids plus chickens can be fun for everyone.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Nice to have you join us!

    Hello again Everyone!

    Should I be concerned now that the temperature is dropping at night? Do you do anything to keep your chickens warm at night?
