    You're most welcome magnolialady. Good luck with your babies! If you have anymore questions I will do my best to help. This site truly is amazing for people that are raising poultry, especially if you are new to it! [​IMG]

    My son named her Beauty. She's our tamest one!

    He also named her Jasmine. (She isn't thrilled about having her picture took.)

    Beauty and Roxy looking at me through the window. I do believe they are giving me the stinkeye. [​IMG] I use this box to keep them safe in while I clean their brooder out...their butts have gotten too big for it I'm afraid!

    I am very much thinking about it. They have been going out to the pen for long periods of time during the day, that is when its warm and not raining. I think that they will be ready by then. If I don't this Friday they for sure will be going out the next Friday. I'm debating on wether or not I will need to keep them in a cage their first few nights in the coop. I have a rooster and hen that was given to me and SO FAR they are all getting along. Lol! We will see. [​IMG] They are so spoiled...they act like they wanna be pampered in their brood box forever.

    Thanks for the info. I will be interested in what you decide to do. Ours are 3 weeks and getting so big! They are now in a 33 gallon Rubbermaid container instead of the galvanized tub. If it is nice weather tomorrow we plan to put them outside for a while. I am afraid they will get cold when we put them out for the night at 5 weeks! Even though our weather is mild in So. Cal I am worried about it but everyone says it will be ok.
    Happy Birthday to your 5 week old babies.

    Mrs. Eskew,
    Well, it is raining today! We never have rain. So I guess we won't be putting our babies outside after all. We had planned to try it for a few hours like you did.

    Hello there. It is raining here as well so I decided to leave my girls in there box one more week. They are pleased with that decision. :) I guess I can baby them a little while longer. He he! I will be letting them in the pen for a while when weather allows.
