    My little peepers hid inside their stall untill yesterday. Granted the weather has been lousy until then. They're smart enough to go out on their own terms.

    Agreed.
    I open the door and the brave ones start to venture out when they're ready, usually at about 3 weeks. When they get cold, wet or frightened they run back in.

    I'd probably put them in the coop and let them venture into the run if / when they are ready.
