    They're one week old today. It wasn't 100 out there, and the humidity was down, so I thought I'd bring them outside to the garden and see what they would do. I have a raised bed out there with no dirt in it yet, a perfect playpen. I covered one end with cardboard to give them some shade.

    Here they all are in the laundry basket for transport:

    They weren't quite sure what to do out there!

    They enjoyed their water!

    I brought them in after about 15 minutes, it was just too hot for them.

    So here is a picture of one each of my five different types at one week:

    Buff Orpington:

    Rhode Island Red:

    Golden Laced Wyandotte:

    Two of the Americaunas or Easter Eggers:

    Barred Rock (this one was hard to photo, she's so dark the flash on the camera and the contrast was hard to control):

    And this one is my favorite. I've already named her. She's Esmerelda, and she watches me closely all the time - she's not afraid, very curious, I know she's going to be my friendliest!

    Awww cute!
    brought my week old chicks out the other day, but I need a better set up, they're so curious they try so hard to squirm away.
