    They are a 2 weeks old today, and with the temps soaring, I would let them get some excersise while I cleaned up.

    I had forgotten how well they take to people. The wife and kids have already decided that we need some that arent headed to teh freezer LOL!

    I picked this lady up yesterday and she did great. Let her out, she flew down right in front of my 4 dogs......then calmly walked back to the group haha!

    Have you found a treat they like? All mine like is their feed and bugs. I've tried apple, bread, melon, lettuce and they just step on it as they're chasing a bug. [​IMG]

    Pretty much the same here regarding treats....and boy o they ever go after bugs LOL!

    I let them out at 11 am and they stayed with me all....day...long:lol: I got them all gathered up and back in right before a nasty storm rolled in. Today they learned all about dust baths haha! It was a riot watching them. Most of them fell asleep, so much so that my youngest son swore they were dead! 3 wild mallards landed in the yard and they rushed them....sent the mallards scurrying!
