My 5 week old chicks are spending their first night outside by themselves. I'm sad, their sad and I want to sleep in there with them. I think I'm panicking more because it's not a real coop yet. They are in an old parrot cage made by my neighbor. It's big enough, has a heat lamp, covered the sides with canvas for now, and lots of hay, and of course their food and water, BUT I MISS THEM!!! The racoons can't get in to get them but may scare the hell out of them. I'm terrified I'm going to go out there in the morning to "scared to death" chickies! Anyone else feel this way at first?
