    This is Cutie and she's the first chick to actually figure a way out of the brooder. I'll admit, she did have an accomplice...she was on top of the tallest waterer and I was petting her while she looked around. She was so calm I decided to see if she'd get into my hand so I put my open hand down in front of her. She stepped into my hand, then right up my arm to freedom. LOL First escape.jpg

    So cute!! Although their escape antics got exasperating a couple of times, for the most part it was hilarious and cuteness overload!

    She got out AND got her name today. Quite the accomplishment for 3 weeks old, don't you think? I hadn't named her yet because I have two GCs, and really couldn't tell them apart until now.

    The rest will follow shortly. Mine are all over the bathroom all the time. I don't even try to keep them in anymore.

    These guys are in a dining room with a carpeted floor... can't let them run around in there. Planning to move them to the garage tomorrow or Monday. That will present its own problems, but escaping there will be a lot less problem. The sides of that pen are several inches taller though, so by the time then can escape that the coop should be ready.
