So my EE and BR chicks are just 3 weeks so still in the brooder, when i take Casie (EE) outside by herself she's just fine and Little Annie (BR) plays quietly. She doesn't run around but rather sticks very close to me sometimes just hopping back onto my arm or leg. But when I switch them around and hold Little Annie, Casie goes absolutely insane, flapping, squawking, running, the whole nine! She does NOT like being alone for the slightest moment, even if I stand right at the brooder holding Annie just out of wings reach! Annie is an explorer, going full speed, discovering, pecking and watching the skies as she plays in the yard. Last night I stuck my arm in there and was petting Casie's chest with the back of my fingers and Annie came running and kept bending around and over my hand searching for treats LOL!
My brown Sex Links are in a temporary home, a large dog crate, until i finish their new coop. I wasn't able to move the playhouse and coop when we moved and had to start from scratch. We have a grape arbor we are turning into their new home and i jut found out it was built by a drunken loof so it's not even, making the process more difficult and time consuming, though it should be done this week i hate having the girls in the dog crate.. It's large enough to hold them I just hate them not being in a very large area. They can't free range because i don't want them to fly over the fence and the neighbors on both sides have dogs that will attack them. One neighbor's previous dog beheaded my daughter's bunny years ago, and I found their current dog in a fenced off section of my backyard last week! Luckily the neighbors themselves are nice and blocked where he was getting in on their side and i did so on ours as well, they also agreed to have the fence repaired and work on keeping him away from it since he tears it up. I am lucky enough that all the neighbors are excited about my chickens without any egg bribing! and they have all agreed to be mindful with keeping the dogs in check.
