    I have to finish up the painitng in the new coop today so we can put up the hardware wire and move the babies from the brooder into thier new coop.....I was out with them this morning and realised how crowded they were... some of them are Huge... at 10 weeks they are almost as big as my older hens [​IMG] And the really sad part is they are all now clucking.. no more cute peep peep peep when they see me. And my little roo tried to crow this morning.. such a sweet but aweful sound. It is sad they grow up so fast.... the only baby I have left is Little peep.. who was hatched out by a broody, she is just starting to explore the outside... soon she is going to be clucking at me as well [​IMG]
