Into the coop they go,
out of their brooder and into a box
(clucking, flapping, squaking)
and down to live with the big guys.
Oh My! What is this?
They have a separate area,
partitioned off with chicken wire
in order to have a safe meet and greet,
getting to know each other a bit.
They have their own separate window that looks
up towards the house. That way we can call down to them and
they can get a good look at the goings on ,
the cats, the small side garden and various critters
that wander by. They are not allowed in the yard yet.
The blind cross beaked chick is still in the house
along with the new batch that thinks she/he's their mom.
He really hasn't grown very much although he has more feathers.
I am thinking the new chicks will outgrown him and I'll have to
keep hatching at least two more at a time to keep him
company until he grows up. If he never grows up
I guess I'll have to get a giant parrot cage and keep him
in the house forever!
A side note:
Something seems to be wrong with Facebook
if you read this there. I can't log in because it is
stuck on my husband's account and he can't log out.
It doesn't even go to his Timeline, just to security settings
which don't work if you try to end the session.
