    We moved our chicks to their coop this morning. I partitioned an area 3' x 5' off and put wood chips down and even made them a little roost. They had outgrown their Rubbermaid brooder. Now they can run around and stretch their wings.

    Three weeks old. I've got a red heat lamp I'm gonna burn at night for them for a while. Our temps are ranging from 65 to 95 so I think with the brooder light at night, they'll be okay.
