    Woke up this morning and went out to the coop and everything was fine. The girls looked at us quizically when we opened the chicken door so they could go out to the run. But by the time I came back from getting a snack to entice them out they were all outside chirping away.

    This is almost as bad as kids! It was like I let them go for their first sleepover!

    My DH thought I was crazy because I wanted them to have a light in there. I did find a very low level LED flashlight.

    What was funny is that when I brought the little ones out for a bit the girls in the coop were sooooo glad to see them. They go out over the weekend.

    Its going to be lonely in the house soon...... no more little peeps. [​IMG]
