My chicks don't seem to know how to get warm.

    I have moved my 5 week old bantams to an outdoor run with a dog house coop in it. The warming light stays on in the coop all day and night. I close them in the coop at night. When I let them out in the morning they come out and then huddle in a corner that is outside rather than going back to the warm coop. Why?

    Mine were doing that also and I decided that I wouldnt let them out until later in the day when the sun came out. They also may not be that cold but why do they huddle together if they are not. Silly little things. So mine just stay in until I think its warm enough outside. Usually by 11am.
