    i was so worried leaving them outside for their first night. my boyfriend thought i was being crazy, but i checked on them several times throughout the night. i had a heat lamp in there and i put them all to bed. this morning when i came out to check on them, it was sprinkling out and they all came runnning to the front of their run to greet me. i think they're enjoying their new home.

    Glad they are ok! Mine made it through their first night in the coop last night too. I'm afraid they did better than I did with their first night [​IMG]

    I can't wait for the first night out! I've started turning their light off at night to get them ready - hopefully next weekend!!

    I am right there with you. I left mine out last night for the first time. I could barely sleep. I was so worried about what I might find this morning. When I went out they looked at me like "What?"
    It's like being the mama with empty nest syndrom isn't it.
