Yesterday was a beautiful day for the first babies I hatched at home, and their friends about the same age to go outside for the first time.
4 of the ones I hatched, 5 FBCM, 5 Welsummers, 1 Lavender Am, 2 Swedish Flowers, 3 Light Brahmas.
We used our handy dandy folding playpen.
6' on a side, 40" high. Made of PVC with the plastic garden fencing. Panels connected with zip ties, and the door closed with dog collars. Only used with supervision.
Daughter got worried when after running around pecking and jumping, one at a time they started laying on their sides and stretching.
I convinced her they were just soaking up that sunlight, and after standing several back up to see that they were alright, she just sat in her chair next to them to watch.
I hated putting them back in the garage last night.
