    Congrats about the new chicks!

    I agree with the advice about getting them locked up in their coop where it's safe. Those cute little babies would be a tasty hors d'oeuvre for any hungry predator.

    Oh that is so neat! I hate how the games hide their nests! Mine is brooding right now on 10 eggs. At least she was smart enough to stay in the barn! She would probably freeze herself, with all the cold weather and rain we've been getting!

    Good luck with the babies!
