    The babies are 6 weeks old tomorrow. Today is their first full day in the yard. They seem pretty happy out there.

    Very cute! Hate to be the party pooper here, but you are aware (I hope) that the white/black EE is a boy, right? [​IMG]

    Very exciting! Our chicks are the exact same age. They moved out to their co-op last weekend. Miss them, but my study smells much better now. They seem very well adjusted. One question - we have 2 RIR, 2 BR, 2 BO and one White Brahma. The pairs all preen each other, and the fancy is left out. The feathers on the back of her neck all seem to be stuck in the sheaths they come out in. We're concerned that she won't have the protection she needs for New England winters. Do we need to worry/can we help her?
