Tonight we moved our 7 EEs to the chicken coop. They are 16 weeks old today, so I know, not babies anymore. They free range with the 19 week old chicks and in the past 2 weeks have been spending a large part of their day in the barn (chicken coop is at one end). Our brooder is in our semi-attached garage. (breezeway in between) The EEs are the most human friendly chicks that we have and every night we spend some time with them in the garage. They "talk" with us, allow touching and cuddling, and wait to settle down until after the time that we spend with them each night. We have 6 each BA, JG, & SLW still in the "brooding pen" in the garage, and since they are large breeds the pen was getting crowded even though they only spent the night and really stormy days inside. They just don't seem to like or want the attention that our EEs did, and we are missing them. So, I'm having a pity party for "pushing" the babies out of the nest and now missing them. Crazy!
