So I took my 5 week olds outside for their morning constitutional; a 30min scratch, flap and prove-your-the-boss fest in the backyard. Some time out of the brooders is good for them and will get them in the free ranging spirit. But I forget they test our tornado sirens on friday, and one is about a half a block from my house. For those not in Tornado Alley, those things are rock concert loud and start with no warning. Turns out all my chicks can get out of my yard by running between picket fence panels, and I'm chasing 5 frightened pullets down my driveway.
