    5 week old chicks are spending their first night in the coop....I'm a little nervous....they will have more room.....Just worried about temp....Have the brooder light in there and at first they just gathered under leaving them alone for a while and will check temp...We had them out and playing for a while and my husband crowed like a rooster and the little babies were scared to death!!! I told them that Dad was mean!!!
