Re: ~~December~~ Chicken Moma Chat Thread. :) Come chat!
Thanks, Liz! I ended up ordering a heat panel from ShoptheCoop.com. It was pricey, but I felt much more comfortable with it. I've read a lot of coop-going-up-in-flames stories, and it leaves me utterly terrified!
The chicks are back outside right now. Still warm today! But we do have to go out this afternoon - I hope they are agreeable when it's time to come in!
I put them all in a cat carrier to bring them outside, then just plop it in the run and open the door. I let them play until they all go back inside the cat carrier to sleep, then I shut the door and put them back in the brooder.
Won't be long before they are living in the coop full-time! It makes me a little sad!
