    I had the chicks outside for the second time today. It actually went a heck of a lot better than last time. No one escaped. I left everyone come out on their own and when I stood up again, they all ran for the pop door. Only had to catch 4 to put back. Not bad. Here's some photos...

    It's not a finished gangplank, just a board... they only use it half the time anyways [​IMG]

    Cho sunbathing. Her all time favorite thing to do.

    Lupin (formerly known as Luna) the EE roo. Wondering what he'll look like grown. I can't wait. He's by far my most friendliest chicken. Loves to sit on your lap.

    They have a lot of fun outside. I can't wait until the run is finished.

    Very cute! [​IMG] But... are you sure Lupin is an EE? His legs look too yellow and not enough green. Plus I don't see the puffy cheeks. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks Jen. I thought the photos were awful... let me upload these videos of my 3 year old and you'll see why I had an issue with my shots. LOL

    Ok, just making sure [​IMG] Of all the EE's that I've seen so far, not one has had yellow legs like that. He's a keeper [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:No, I don't know how to do that. I'm just going with behavior, stance, body shape and feathering in rate. My gut says it's a roo, as well as Godric. Cho is from Deb (Justusnak) so that could be why she's feathering sooner, but I just think it's because she's a hen. The way their feathers are coming in are completely different.
