    So Friday was one week since hubby brought the girls home all fluffy and featherless....

    Found out I have 1 light Brahma, 3 New Hampshire Reds, and 5 silverlaced wyondotte...

    Last night they were practicing sycronized napping... Then leaping up to go eat again...

    Today they are doing relays up and down the brooder...flapping little wings, using the food trays as hurdles and then throwing in red light green light by dropping down in place mid run and pretending to nap!

    Very entertaining!

    Necessity is the mother of invention! If it gets too mucky I can just toss it in the compost, or use it to start seeds... Prefertalized! [​IMG]

    They are little characters at this age...the first few days it was eat, sleep, poop...now it's eat, sleep, play, sleep, eat, poop... Lol

    3 weeks old tomorrow, and the girls spent there first full day outside...

    At first they stayed huddled together, then they discovered the dirt...

    They took dust baths, and stretched their wings...they practiced perching...they ate grass...they caught and ate their first bugs... Tonight instead of sleeping a lil, playing, eating repeat... As the Sun went down so did they...They're in the house and it's warm so I turned off their lamp today and didn't turn it back on when I brought them in...

    My Dad told me today that the big chickens wouldn't tolerate them until They stopped peeping...

    Its hard to believe that one day of sunshine could bring about such a change... But they are sound asleep and not making a peep!

    They are so adorable!

    I'll have to remember the egg-feeder idea. That is just genius.
