    So, I was a nervous mama moving my babies from the garage to the coop outside. They have been outdoors since Tuesday afternoon and are doing great! It was a big place for them at first but they are exploring every inch of their new home now. They peep as it gets dark out and then they huddled in a corner together and fall alseep. The nights here are around 60+ right now and they have done fine without a heat lamp. Day time temps are 80 or so. I turn their overhead light on in the morning around 6:30AM and they jump up and down, wings flapping, ready to eat and drink...SO CUTE! Now they have discovered the big perch above and have started flying up there!

    Growing babies are always eating!

    Awww... so cute [​IMG] Lucky chicks to have so much space [​IMG] But how old are they? Im guessing not much more than 3 weeks - not fully feathered, so aren't they cold without a heat lamp? [​IMG]
