    We brought our babies home last Sunday, two at about 20 weeks old and the other two about 15 weeks. The older ones have been taking themselves off up to bed on their own but tonight was the first night the two little ones have gone by themselves. They were all in by 8.00pm. We're going to give them their first run out in the garden on Sunday, they're trying to get of out the door already when we go into their run so they are ready for a little freedom.

    So...our girls had their first outing on Sunday which was very successful. Initially we had to bribe them out of their run but as soon as they realised they were free they were all over the place. When we bought them they had been kept in a small run so this really is their first taste of freedom. Our smallest, Cheryl Cole, had to sit down and have a rest after about an hour, she was so worn out when I picked her up and sat her on my knee she closed her eyes and had a little sleep! She is so sweet. The only problem we did have is with the fact that they seem to love Petunias. This is not good!! I think that next year all our flowers will be in hanging baskets. [​IMG]

    Eating flowers must make chickens beautiful. Does it make them smell pretty too?
