    I have three EE chicks that will be three weeks old on Thursday... we are in the 90’s during the day and 70 at night... do yall think they could be moved to the “see no touch” section in the big run? Without heat light? Which I do not think they need anymore.. I was only putting it on them at night to keep the mosquitoes away... it actually keeps the mosquitoes away! And I have it set really far back.. they are on the porch right now..
    Thanks for any advice :)

    I think you have perfect weather to move them to the see no touch area.

    I would put them out. Give them a huddle box in case they want that for additional heat.

    I know you’re kidding ;)
    Weeeelllllll, actually I’m trying to convince hubs to make me a whole separate coop and run for the bantams :gig... that way.. more room... for more! :lol:... you do realize he JUST expanded my coop and run AND put up a fence for a large yard for them!?
    So at this point he thinks I’m nuts and is putting his foot down! He says I can’t be satisfied :tongue... but it’ll come :lau
