    Well the day has come. My 2 aracaunas are going to be making the move to the coop this week. They have been spending increasing amounts of time outside when the cool weather allows. This weekend they were out for 10 hours. They seem to be getting used to moving in and out of the coop and scratching and eating and generally being chickens. This week we are expected to be in the 70s during the day and 40s at night. They are 6 weeks and 3 days tomorrow. Does anyone have any last words of wisdom? Sage advise? Check-lists?
    Many thanks in advance!
