Yesterday was the first day I was able to put chicks outside in the "new" (read "old", but redone) grow out pen. I am getting such a kick out of going out there and just sitting and watching them, so I thought I'd share a few pics. The wheatens/blue wheatens and 4 of the smaller blacks hatched 2/29. The other five blacks hatched 2/18.
I called them, not sure if they'd come or not since they have this big area to play in, but here they all came
My lone little blue wheaten pullet out of that hatch
And, one of the two blue wheaten cockerels from that hatch
The blue wheaten pullet and one of the black pullets, seeing whether I have treats or not
and, deciding I do
and, a couple of other misc. pics...
I think they are beautiful. Mine are still in a brooder. I have been taking them outside to a playpen of sorts but soon they will be going to their coop. I'm a bit over protective. Lol
