    Here is a pic of some of the chicks chillin' out on the patio furniture yesterday. The girls are lovin' their new coop/run but prefer to be out in the yard with us if we are outside. They definitely know who their "mommies" are...

    Here is a similiar picture that was taken a week or two ago...notice their little fuzzy necks in this picture. They grow so fast:

    They also love their new "jungle gym" roost in the big run. We use a ladder as the foundation (leaning it securely up against a side of the run). From the ladder we put long, branches we found in the yard and staggered them out from the rungs. There are about 4 "levels" of roost that span out like sun rays from the ladder foundation. These birds love being up high!
