    Great pictures - the chicks look happy. What breeds do you have?

    Thanks,

    2 Australops
    2 Star Reds
    2 Plymouth Barred
    4 EE

    And it is nice to have them out and are they stretching their wings. I had to take this run that I am building for their coop and make it temporary as they were starting to get out of the other run.

    But the kids love them and can't leave them alone. Which is why we got them. Teach them where their food comes from and to have some other pets.

    1 wife
    2 girls (4 & 2)
    3 cats
    1 dog
    10 chickens

    Enjoy your weekends

    Nice pictures. I have some 4-5 week old Australorps that are a riot. They are so much more curious and friendly than my RIR's were at that age. If you keep handling them at their young age, they will like you so much more as they grow. Keep up the good job you're doing!

    Thanks. I try to sit with them for an hour everyday. My kids sit with them when ever we will put them in with them

    We are located in North of Milwaukee in a small town called Port Washington.
