    We had a hot beautiful weekend this last weekend. High 70's to low 80's. We were outside all weekend working on coop. Took some left over fencing and post and put a make shift chick yard in. Brought the chicks out. Well guess what they could squeeze thru the fencing. So chicken wire went around that too. Next they tried to squeeze under it. Darn chicks are like Houdini. Well I did get a couple pictures while they were out. One even figuared out the sand made a good dust bath.
    I'm watching you.

    Huddled in the make shift shade.

    It was nice here this weekend too and I also thought I'd get my little girls (2 weeks) outside. The old hexagon dog pen I planned to put them in let them slip right through. Fortunately we tried with the smallest one first and when she got right out we abandoned that idea until they're bigger. (I could imagine all 25 of em running around loose- especially with my 10 cats- ugh!)
    I can't wait to see what they do in the grass though!
