    Hello everyone! I bought 2 Red Sex Links on Friday. 1 male 1 female. Went back on Saturday and got 4 female Buff Orpingtons. One of which died on Sunday. I have them in a very large storage container on my kitchen table with a heat bulb and thermometor. I took them outside for an hour to their fenced in run. They really had a good time. They have to say the least doubled in size. Oh course the Buffs maybe younger, but they are bigger than the other 2.
    Here is a pic of my first 2 on the 1st day. They were in a smaller storage container then.
    Now does anyone know when it would be safe to move them outside to a shed we are turning into a coup with a large run? Thanks in advance for any ideas:)[​IMG]

    [​IMG] cute fluffy butts you have there. The norm for putting babies outside full time is once they feathered. I live in FL so mine go out to grow out pens because of our warm temps.

    I have one Buff Orpington, "Daisy" She is the sweetest hen in my small flock. If I could only have one breed, that would be it. Enjoy your chicks and [​IMG] from California!
