    deep down inside i know they will be ok. but then again, lol there was a reason to giving them a whole bedroom( i now have a chick room where i can put a ton of chicks!) i didnt want to put them outside too soon. so they had an entire 20x20 room to them selves... but today is warm and this next week its supposed to get even warmer... i dont have AC soo out they went.. its really quiet... hmm wonder if our feed store has more chicks?

    My four will be sleeping in their grown-up coop for the first time tonight and I'm totally nervous. They love the run, but don't care for the coop for the ladder much yet. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] 60 chicks in the house for 8 weeks???? [​IMG] NO WAY!!!! Are you kidding?

    I don't even keep mine in the house for more than a week in the dead of winter! Garage for up to 2 weeks, and that is it .... in the winter only! No chickens in my house, thank you! The dust and dander would kill me, as well as ...... Well, good luck with your chicks!
