Chicks








The girls are growing!  They are mostly feathered now.

Little Omelet is still fluffy and tiny.

We've introduced them to the older hens in the yard, with plenty of space.  Chloe has asserted her authority with one quick peck to the beak.   The chicks need to grow a bit older before they are fully transferred outside to the coop.   We are considering letting them run around the coop for a bit tomorrow, and then bringing them back inside for the night, under their heat lamp.

Stay tuned for a full report of the Chicken Integration Project...
