    I took them outside again for a romp in the garden bed. I don't think I'll be able to do this next week, they'll be too big and flying - I'm afraid I'll lose one or two or ten!


    Here's one of the Ameraucanas, they have the most wingfeathers so far!:


    Next is a RIR:


    Two of the buff orps, one with the poor picked-out tailfeathers:


    The Barred Rocks are never still! It's tough to get a pick without blurring, this is the best one today:


    This last one is too cute, she's vamping for the camera! Golden Laced Wyandotte:

    oh, seems like just yesterday my babies were that small! (Ok, it was about 5 weeks ago) but time flies.

    Love the GLW...she is precious!

    I've got three different colors on the Ameraucanas, so yes, they do seem to vary quite a bit. But the green legs give them away! [​IMG]

    They're beautiful!!! By the way, you can keep taking them out. They won't fly away. Granted, as they get older it's a little tougher rounding them all up, but they'll stick together and amazingly they don't wander far at all! i have a picnic basket that I use to transport mine out for 'outings', then i scoop them all up and bring them back in.

    I am using a big laundry basket - it's messy, but it works. I'll give it a try again next Wednesday. The lighting is so much better outside for pictures.
