Soon we will be 4 weeks old! We have doubled our size again! At night we don't even all use the heat cave.
The bigs are almost done with our run! Just needs the fence over the top. The run is 9 feet wide for about 25 feet, then tapers back to the barn for the last 10 feet, for a total of about 275sqft. Mom says we will also be able range more when we are older.
Our pop door will be on the far end by the taper. Mom says that it will be painted later in the year, just need to replace a few more boards first.
Today was a fun day! Even though we don't have our own door, Mom brought us out for a few hours.
We loved all the space! We have several hidey holes, branches, rocks, a couple of metal shelters, and even an old tractor tire to play around in. The grass is starting to grow, and we enjoyed munching on it.
The brahma siblings were the first to discover they could scratch and bathe in the dirt! And soon we were all trying it!
This is a favorite corner! There are a couple clover plants that are bright green, along with moist soil to dig in. One of us even found a worm to play keep away with!
Here I am. I am still the smallest, but my siblings Ember and Mystic are also small, so I am not alone. There are two Brahma's Mom thinks are boys- and they are triple my size! but they are ultra gentle.
See here- I am the blur in the top left corner- next to one of the brahma hens. Directly in the middle is Mystic- with the bright white chest, and black feathers. She is streaching, but otherwise isn't so big.
This is Imp- She was a part of a brown layer pullet mix, but Mom is thinking she is looking rooish- her comb is starting to show pink at the base. If Imp is a roo, Imp will have to go to camp, because Mom can only keep a couple roos. Otherwise Imp is curious and friendly. She will even hop on Mom's lap and hang out.
This is Ginger! She is a Buff Orp. She is very Friendly! She was the first to hang out on Mom's lap. Every time mom visits she will peck at her shoes until she lets her in her lap. She is also the only one of us who likes to be pet. She is slowly showing us that it is okay to hang out on mom.
