    They were born right around Christmas so that should make them almost 4 weeks old. They are just so stinky even with daily cleaning of the cage and baths. I still have a heat lamp on them which they like but I am not sure if they still need it. There are 8 of them so I am sure they can cuddle.

    Can I take away the heat lamp and have them in the house at room temp (about 69-70 degrees) and then in another week put them in the garage or is that too soon???

    How well developed are their feathers?

    Quote:they still are fluffy and have not feathered in yet maybe they have to much heat from the heat lamp? I will try to take some pics but photobucket is taking forever today!
