That's what I was thinking on the shavings too. The reason we cover it with straw is similar. If they're straight on it and breathing it they can get pneumonia. So I'll skip it with the chicks. Talked to DH about it. He said running a light out to the turkey coop would be easy enough. The turkey coop is just as weather proof as the chicken coop so I think that would be easier than sectioning off par of our chicken coop. We're leaving for church in a few min. but he said he'd try and get it done tonight. We'll see how that goes since I still have to go up to work and water and fix some stuff in my greenhouse. They may just have to stink until tomorrow. The days just aren't long enough to get it all done.
