Hey all, So I just couldn't wait until spring and got a box of chicks on September 1st. I assumed that the coop'd be finished and it'd be warm enough to introduce them to the great outdoors in late October. Well, here we are in November and the coop's just now getting done, the temps are in the teens, and I still have 7 chickens under the stairs in my living room. I throw them out in the yard whenever I can, but they're clearly miserable away from their cushy digs. They puff up and sit by the door until I relent and let them in. Any tips about getting young housechooks winterized? While it's very nice listening to their contented noises while reading a book by the fire, it's hard to imagine having half a dozen full grown chickens in my house all winter. The possibility of returning from work to find their barricade down and poop all over the house is a constant looming (and occasionally realized) threat. Help!
