    Aren't they! The first night was a little scary, but with the great directions I got from this site they stayed toasty all night long. I did have a little issue with one, but warm water and a Q-tip worked. Daylight savings time didn't bother the peeps at all this morning. Sitting at my desk at work I can't help worrying a little about them being all alone, but they are in the garage safe from anything that might harm them and with fresh water and feed I am sure they are fine.

    Thanks so much Liz9910 and all. Watched a couple of videos on coop cleaning at lunch. Not near the time for that, but might as well prepare myself. Doesn't look any worse than clean out my cat box.
