Happy 4th!

Instead of whooping it up, we’re cooping it up this 4th. It’s getting harder and harder to manage the girls inside, so we’re hoping to send them into the coop a bit early. The rule of thumb is that chickens go into the coop when they’re “fully feathered”. Conventional wisdom says 8 weeks; some people toss their hens into the coop at 6 weeks, and we’re aiming for 5 weeks, in hopes that a heat lamp inside the coop will keep them warm and happy.
