Last week we moved our baby chicks (although not babies anymore) into to big house with their big sisters. Went to get the eggs tonight and found this I about fell over. #1 it's size, #2 it was in the nest box. It took our Brahma and Buffs about a week to get the hang of it. Now all of that horrible clucking this morning makes sense, my babies are turning into big girls. I guess having big sisters around probably does make the task a little easier to understand. So far they seem to be getting a long great. I'm glad we kept them living side by side for as long as we did before we put them together. PS I love Austalorps, I will always keep them in my mixed little flock of 5 And one question, why is it that I think my chickens are such a pain in the neck and my wallet until I start reading this sight, then I'm excited to be a chicken owner all over. Hmmmm.
