    I'm just gonna be plain honest with you. I don't think the two black ones are ready yet, but the bigger brown ones are ready to go outside. But, then again, the weather here has been shitty, so I just don't know.

    I hated the day I moved the youngsters to the coop!
    I felt separation anxiety all night!:hit

    The weather here is pretty nice now, it's in the 70s and isn't going below freezing at night anymore! I also have a heating pad in there for them in case they need a warm spot. I didn't want to separate them since they've grown up together. I think they'll be alright :)
