Thank you. Where in Gaston? I'm in Cherry Grove. I've also been thinking about allowing them out of their run into a fenced in area but not too sure about predation durning the day.I’m also in Gaston, small world!
For winterizing make sure they have a dry predator proof sleeping area. I don’t provide heat in the winter to any that are fully feathered since we honestly don’t get too cold or snowy usually.
