    So about 14 weeks ago was my first time raising chicks! I only got two though. Then when they were like 7 weeks old I decided it was probably time for them to go outside full time......Haha, It reminded me of the scene on Charlotte's web when Wilbur sleeps outside for the first time! Why? Because it was about eight o'clock, dark out, and my little sister comes up to me and says "Is your chicks running loose outside?" I said no, don't worry about. About 15 minutes later she comes back and says "Are you POSITIVE your chicks aren't running loose outside!?" I asked her why she thought they were running loose outside and she said she could hear one of them by the backdoor. Sooooo, I go see whats going on, I open the back door, turn to my side......AND......There was my chicks.......Oh wow! I was trying to imagine what would've happened if she hadn't have heard them! So I go put them back where they were going to sleep and I guess I forgot to close the top! Thank God my little sister heard them!
