So today is the big day. I'm planning on letting out my 8 week olds into the yard for the first time this evening. Their coop is behind a big building and they have a big open field between their coop and the woods and a small pond as well. There is a creek not far into the woods so we have some pretty good natural boundaries for them. Hopefully, fingers crossed, they will roam around the field and then retire to their coop at bedtime. I'm excited but nervous. Please wish me luck!
