    My little bantams are staying outside tonight. They have a good sturdy mini shed/huge doghouse and a kennel reinforced with tons of extra wire, and I know it's secure, but I still keep thinking I'll only find bloody feathers tomorrow. Were you guys nervous when you first let your chickens stay out? Got any tips for keeping predators away?

    Here are some pics of my little chickies

    Yes, everyone has those fears. EVERYONE.

    And your chicks are absolutely adorable. Lovely mixed flock! Very colorful.

    When my grandpa was alive, he would bleach in a cup and put it at the four corners of his gardening plot to keep coyotes and other vermin out... Maybe old man talk... But...[​IMG]

    I'm spoiling them. My oldest went outside for the first time the other day but they don't like to be out once it starts to get dark so I bring them in to sleep with the little chicks in the house.

    Morning came and everyone is fine![​IMG] They got scared of the doghouse when it got dark, so I left a flashlight lantern in there as a night light. Solved the problem perfectly![​IMG]
