Well, that lasted about 30 minutes. I will say in my defense that it was a real howler last night--wind whistling around the house, rattling all the windows--and this house does get noisy in a windstorm. I will also say that when I asked Scott if he didn't think the chicks might be a little happier inside for just one more night, he did not put up much of a fight.
So there we were at 10:30, trudging out to the coop with a flashlight, to wake the girls from what looked like a pretty warm and comfortable sleep and bring them indoors.
For their safety, of course.
Tonight they are sleeping outside for sure.
No doubt about it.
Definitely sleeping outdoors.
Which will be fine. For all of us.
