    Finally the weather cooperated and my girls could stay out all day. Our run is finished 10x7, we still need to finish securing the coop so I bring them in at night. They are soooo happy scratching around and chasing bugs. We live in Orlando so it is warm enough for them to stay out at night when we get the coop finished this weekend. My buffs really loved to be held they act almost like parrots so when they are outside permanently I think my girls will bring them in to love on them.

    My BOs love it outside. They are 6 wks old now and have been outside since they were 9 days old. They love being held and cuddled-my lap isn't big enough!
