    Well the chicks have grown and now we can definitely tell the hens from the Roos. Right now we still have 4 Roos along with the 5 hens. Since they are now almost 4 months old, three of the roos will be gone soon. The one pictured below is Chester. I am keeping him.

    Having a snack of watermelon
    So far they really like the watermelon, fresh blackberries ( I pick them fresh for them. They also enjoy corn on the cob and really big "juicy" grubs.
    I find it very comical to watch
    them go after flies, crickets and
