Note to self: Don't order day-old chicks in November..... The setup: Catawba Coop; 4'x8' downstairs run; 8'x1.5'x1'H upstairs "coop"; not enough room to hang lamp upstairs. The chicks: 3, 8-wk. old EE (one confirmed Roo that will be re-homed soon ) The issues: They seem to have alot of fluff still. Lots of real feathers, as well. The weather here has been balmy lately and they spent 3 days in the coop last weekend: chilly at night so i brought them in for sleep-overs in the brooder. It's been raining all this week with a high in the 50's. Next wk they're forcasting our first arctic cold front. I don't see it getting significantly warmer until March. The question: Can i move the darlings out permanantly, or should i keep them in the house (EE's are MUCH more active than my other girls were!)? The dilema: Parnoid, over-protective, chicken mom.... Anyone want to feed my addiction?
