    [​IMG] Today the weather here is sunny and hot; so we let the chicks out for a while- tomorrow is suppose to be 90. They hve both sun and shade in the yard and we keep a close I on them. I have also notice in about 8 hours they can go through a quart of water. The RIR have already started putting on feathers. and have grown a lot in a week. I hope you enjoy the New Pic.

    Ray, great pics....looks like the little chicks are enjoying a day out. Hopefully it will get nice here in Indiana soon, and I can get my little ones out soon.

    It's 85 here today, and my chicks are out in their yard. They are loving it. I tied the door to their house open and they hop in and out, scratch for a while in the yard, hop on and off of a milk crate, eat a bit, drink a bit, take a nap. What a life!!!
