    I moved Momma and babies into the coop today...When I went out tothe barn this morning I almost freaked cause the heat lamp was off I dont know when the bulb burnt out but it was 40 in the brooder...So I moved them to the coop where the sun is warming them...I will run to the pet store for another bulb and will put the lamp out there tonight...Now momma can have her spa time anytime she wants... They are almost 2 months old and have most of their feathers and the weather is moderating...

    Mine will be 18 days old tomorrow and they are going out into their little grow-out coop then (rain should be stopped by afternoon). Gotta make room for the next batch of hatchlings coming in two weeks.
