    How old do they have to be before you can let them explore for a bit in the grass?

    Quote:Sorry, sorry! I'm not the original poster. I thought you were trying to answer my question of how old do they need to be to explore the grass a little. No idea how old the ones in the pics are.

    I thought they looked a lot like mine [​IMG] I've had mine 3 weeks today -- I figure they were about 3-4 days old when I got them.
