    So I've been worried about putting my little girls into the big girl house so I made them a brooder pen in the enclosed run where they have been sleeping, and freeranging during the day. The little girls are between 5 and 8 weeks i think?? I was at work for a two day duty period and my BF called me last night to tell me that he hadn't been able to find the little girls in the brooder... He heard a peep so stuck his head in the pop door and the three little girls were all smooshed together in a nesting box while my australorps were up on the roost!!! Turns out when I turned off the heat lamp they decided it was a good time to move to the big house! I'm so proud of my peepers and can't wait to peek for myself tonight!
