    My approx. 3 week old girls have been pasty butt free for two whole days, so I decided to offer them a treat. Gave them a hard boiled egg, and boy, did they party!! Lots of snagging/playing keep away. Cutest thing I've ever seen!

    I'm so excited that they are getting old enough to start spoiling with treats.[​IMG]

    don't forget to give them grit if they don't range outside sometime during the day...[​IMG]
