These chickens are growing like weeds! Long gone are the days of fluffy little cute chicks. We have fully reached the gawky stage that only a mother can love And love them I do. This chicks provide hours of entertainment and hours of work…
This week they were introduced to their new run. They are still rather small so they only get to explore the run when I am working neat by. I am still worried a hawk might swoop down and grab them! I probably don’t have to worry too much though. They don’t do much outside. They are more interested in the ants and moss in the doorway!
Of course Mohawk and Tofu (there was a name change from Toes to Tofu recently, haha) always the leaders were the first to come over and check things out.
Their first steps outside were VERY cautious.
Instinct kicked in as soon as they stepped into their run. The chicks knew to scratch and were searching for bugs moments after stepping into the grass. I can’t wait to put them to work cleaning up the garden this fall!
