    Well after several weeks of preparing coop we finally picked our chicks up from the neighbors farm. She had been keeping them for us till they were ready for the coop.
    1- Light Brahama
    1- Silver Laced Wyandotte
    1- Silver Cuckoo Maran
    1- Partridge Rock
    1- Columbian Wyandotte

    The Brahma is aprox 5 weeks....and the rest are aprox. 3 weeks. It was their first time in a run so it was all about investigating the new surroundings. They needed some persuation to get into the new coop for the night. We couldn't help but watch them for the first hour and realized it was time for them to go to bed. looking forward to raising these girls.[/img

    Walmart and other stores sell solar lights inexpensively - $2-$3 I use one so they will go up the ladder. I take it out each AM to charge and put it in at night. They liked the night light.
