I have two silkie babies that are about 8 weeks old. They are living in my living room & boy what a mess. I live in northern North Carolina and it has been very cold, so I know they can't go outside now, just wondering what is the "norm". I just found this site & it is a wealth of information. I also have a hen & roo about a year old that are outside, we have had them about 3-4 months & love, love, love them.
