    Here my Rooster "BARBQ" is having a chat with the duck about the food supply. lol

    Here the other chicks back up BarBQ on the food issue

    I did and always do give the duck a little food. I will soon have a couple ducks of my own and this way the chicks will get used to them. HEHE

    How old are they Chickcrew? They look like they're having lots of fun!

    We have three 7 week old chicks that have just started staying in their coop, I was a bit worried when I saw them out in the rain....can they catch colds? They can go inside but seemed happy out in the rain.

    they are 6 weeks old and have been in the coop for a bout 3 weeks. They love the rain, they would stand in it and then shake it off. It's so funny. I didn't leave them out in the rain that long cause I had to leave. They were out there about 3 hours.
