    Our 7 week old chicks started sleeping out in their (zero dollar) coop one week ago today. Every night we've had to round them up and show them how to go up the ramp to bed.

    Well tonight I went out there and (drumroll please!!!!) all eight of them were sittin' pretty on their perches, snuggled in for the evening. They had put themselves to bed right on time!

    We are just so new to all of this that I can't believe it's "working", you know? Yipee!
