Quote:Welcome to BYC Colvin.sherice! Sharron, I thought I was pushing the weather envelope with my new girls, but got them acclimated and outside while we had some warmer weather. How are you going to get your little ones ready for winter? Is your coop insulated? Love to see some pics of your babies! hannakat, I never knew how much fun raising chickies could be! I am just glad they are settled in the coop and ready for winter! I need to take some more pics today, someone on here had swings in their run so I added swings to both runs and now it looks like a playground for chickens! well i normally don't do chicks this late in the year but had chance to get these eggs which i normally couldn't afford so i took a chance and had very good luck hatching. our coop isn't insulated but my husbands family had an old old brooder thingy, it hangs from the ceiling in the chicken house and the chicks can run in and out as they please, if they get cold, they run under, if they get too warm, they run out into the coop, it takes up alot of room but works great Sounds like a good plan and who can pass up more chickies!
