Here are my 14 week old "babies," stepping out in the world!

  1. Finally got up the nerve to let them out, opened the door to their room, and........they ignored it. At least for a week or so.

    Then six of them came out, and I closed the rest in. Who the hell knows where the first six went. They walked STRAIGHT into the woods and I haven't seen them again.

    So, it took me another week to open the door again, but I did, and the rest came out. They have been out for four days and are doing great....my "senior, free range" guinea started in on them, and now they follow him everywhere. I lost four of them the first night, but I can't get them to go inside at night for anything. They LOVE it outside.

    Here they are, not a great pic....

    They are cute! It kept my keets in a kennel for about 10 months, I really didn't want anything to happen to them. I am glad I left them in there so long cause they are very start about everything now.
