i once had a litter born on ths coldest nite of the year and survived well, but grass at this time of year isnt really that good for the young and if there not used to it u could give them bloat, also moving them backwards and forwards from pen to hutch can cause stress, and learnt that the hard way :cry: , but i would start then off gentally first then build on that, so wait a coulpe of weeks before moving them around too much, im sure others have different advice but this advice is on what experince iv had with my litters
