Right to bed

Due to the warm temps today, we turned the heat lamp off in the coop for most of the day.  As a result, the chicks experienced their first dusk and nightfall -- and, with no artificial light, their first prolonged period of darkness since they were shipped as day old hatchlings.

Amazingly, they did exactly what they're supposed to do at dusk -- climb up to their roost and sleep shoulder to shoulder.

The heat lamps back on now, so I guess it'll be another restless night in the coop.
