    Well the chicks are about 5d old and Mama takes them around the whole coop.The area I made for her with the heat lamp on she does not stay in.She has them in the other area of the coop where the ramp is to the outside.They are traapsing around everywhere.She lets them scurry around then sits down so they can warm up then up she is with her 3 little babies.I had to show them the water and the babies were so thirsty.I keep an eye on them and keep the food within reach but Mama seems to have her agenda with the crew.I hope they make it.It has been cold.Down in the 20's at nite couple nites it was 18,during the day 25-35.
