Chicks Night Out!

My (not so) little 8 1/2 week-old chicks were recently moved out into the garage coop (with their heat lamp since it has been so cold) and are spending all day in the garage now. They haven't quite figured out how to use the ramps to get inside or outside, but that doesn't matter since it has been too cold to let them out into their run anyway. They also haven't mastered the roosting pole. I did manage to catch one of them sitting on it at one point, but other than that, they don't seem to use it out of choice (they seem pretty happy sleeping on the floor nestled in leaves).

The chickens are still not quite sure what to do with the ramp to the outdoors (despite sprinkling food up the steps as an enticement).
Scratching around for cracked corn...hopefully this will help incorporate the poo into the leaves.
