Funny how when I kept them inside in a brooder (aka cardboard box) they were scared of me. Now I trip over them!

They've been outside almost a month now and most are fully feathered. I have one breed that was slower in feathering out but two chicks of that breed still aren't fully feathered out. Other than that, all are healthy. I started out with 2 heat lamps in their shelter. Now I have one on only at night. I will soon be taking that away.

As you can see, some of them have discovered the bowls of dog food on the porch. They have a ball kicking it all out!

Wow, I cant believe how much they grow in such a short time!!!! Mine are also a week old, and I'm so amazed that by April they will look like that!



Your chicks are beautiful!

At Four weeks old. I moved them to the henhouse yesterday. They are such scaredy chickens.
They all run hide when I walk in.
