Well first of all I have the chicks that hatched April 24th still inside. I haven't been able to make a coop that I can't find a few chickens to fill. Hubby keeps asking if I'm done yet. Last time he asked I just walked away shrugging and giggling. The next hatch was early May. Have to look it up as April and May I lost my mom and dad and I haven't been right since, so I'm lost without notes and I seem to lose those. I have 1 EE from one of my birds that was the only hatch and only tossed it in with a few dozen shipped eggs. Been a bad couple of months for shipped eggs for me. I have 2 new EEs that hatched this week. None of the shipped eggs made it AGAIN. Ok I'm getting sidetracked. Today I took all the older chicks out and let them run the yard. They had treats, visited all the pens and birds, explored. They had a great time. Thing is they've been hanging out at the garage door since 3pm. One even ran passed me earlier and jumped into it's brooder. I need them to start staying outside this weekend (coop is aaaalmost done). They love being out and never try to get back in, but don't run when I collect them up to put them away. I hope I don't have to put a nightlight out there and read bedtime stories next.
