    MY chicks have been outside more than in today. I put them back into the coop/brooder house a few times, yesterday they wouldn't come out at all without shoo'ing them.

    Today they refused to stay inside. So about 30 mins ago, its starting to cool off, a little, I turned on the heat lights. One by one 8 chicks (12 dayers) started going inside and laying down, I could see them sleeping.

    I was proud of those 8, so I only had to chase 9 into the coop.

    They also discovered clover was good to eat today, and devoured what little of it was in their pen.
