    Ok, its nice and sunny in my part of Oklahoma and so ive got my littlens in a fenced area of the yard :D ofcourse they are having a blast but i do have a few questions about letting them run around since they are alittle less then a week old. A) Is it safe? B) Should i only let them out for a while or does it matter? and also C) one has pasty butt and its been clearing pretty good but i went ahead and got some apple cider vinegar.. and bad comments or good comments over it?
    THANKS :D lol

    I had my few day old EEs out earlier today. They were out 10 minutes and they started falling asleep, so I put them back in the brooder. I personally wouldn't leave them out unsupervised and wouldn't leave them out for too long. I've tried ACV in the water and my chicks seemed to drink less, so I can't tell you how poorly or well it helps with pasty butt. I just make sure I keep them clean and check them regularly.
