Hey guys moved my girls to the coop today. It wasn't my ideal day to do it, but with Easter tomorrow the house and basement will be full while we entertain the guests. The 4 girls are just shy of 5 weeks. Unfortunately the weather today is rainy and slightly chilly at 48 degrees. I have the coop full of bedding about 3 1/2-4 inches of wood shavings. All doors and windows are sealed to keep any drafty air out. They've been out about about 2 hours now and when I checked them they seemed content. Not peeping for help or shivering. All roosting on the indoor bars. Should I allow nature to take its course? What's the earliest and coldest you've moved a flock out without a broody mother.
