    I have three week old baby chicks and today I am moving them into the coop. There is a chicken wire wall between them and the grown hens and they will have thier own yard with a predator net protecting the top. Any other suggestions before I move them? They seem so little, but they are flying out of the box I put them in. I'll put up a heat lamp in the coop for just them.

    As long as they have a heat lamp in the coop and the weather is nice and warm outside, I think they'll be fine.
