    Yes, it's okay. They're probably already awake anyway.

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I'm sure they won't mind, especially if you come bearing treats!

    Yeah, that's no problem. Our chickens are usually up before it's light anyway :lau Whenever we leave their gate open, they wake up at unearthly hours of the morning looking for food!

    I'm sure they won't mind you going to see them anyway, even if they're not fully awake. :lol:

    No problem at all. I have to get my girls going early, too. Even though they are still roosting when I go out, they are awake and mumbling away.
    They free range and get their feed, cheerios and BOSS. Don't worry, they are just fine! [​IMG]
