Thanks! Our temps. here have already been in the 70's-80's (daytime) and I guess 60's low at night [except for the past few days where it's been unseasonably cool].

I guess the only reason I'm really concerned is that I just enlarged (by maybe, 4 times) their enclosure which means I can't monitor them as easily as I could when they were in the smaller space. They have free-growing munchies all throughout their new space, plus I'm seeding it with worms, pill bugs, and grubs, so there's plenty there for them. It's just the "Mom" in me that recalls/misses the feeding sessions where they all gathered 'round the food dish as soon as I'd put food out. For now I've picked one spot as the feeding area and whenever I put food out (every 2 days), I'll gather up whoever I can find and show them the food just so they'll get used to that location.

I have them inside right now: it's the first-of-the-season soaking & exam session! Haven't weighed them yet, but they all look healthy and are active. They've all had an opportunity to poop where I can see, and that looks normal.
