    Glad your chicks enjoyed their day out.

    How old to chicks have to be before you can take them on a field trip to the yard? I'd like to take mine out just for a bit with supervision, of course. But I'm worried that they aren't old enough yet. Thanks!

    Put mine out today also and my dogs couldn't get enough of them. My lab would just stand there and watch them and my yorkie kept barking till I put him in there with the chicks then he just smelled them and wanted out within a miniute. I don't think I'll have a problem with the yorkie but the lab I'll have to work with.
