    That a good price but they are still babys and they still need heat. I would get the out of the chicken pen and put them in a broader or they want make it throught the night.

    i also wanted to put them in my 2000 sq ft flight pen with some quail in a few months. do they carry croyzia? i do have another much smaller pen, house is 6x10 and run is 10x10, will that be sufficent when they are grown?
