    Let the 4 week old girls/boy out for the first time into their 15x25 run. They have been in the coop for the last 2 weeks just staring out the hardware cloth that is across the openings. They didn't know what to do once their feet touched the grass:D. They did adapt pretty quickly and soon all 18 of them were running all over the place and fighting over bugs and worms.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures! They look so happy.

    When my 13 first went out, they stood in a bunch by the door, then walked in a bunch to a corner of the fence and stood in a bunch there. They love it so much now, they just explode out the door.
