    I just wanted to share some pictures of my 5 wk old chicks. Our flock consists of Buff orpingtons (by far the friendlist of the bunch), blk australorps, EE's and Silver laced Cochins. They just moved out of brooder to the coop five days ago and loving it!

    My DH was off to the side making noise putting finishing touches on their chicken coop, that's why the're all huddled together. [​IMG]

    Very nice flock! And the chicken whisperer is cute, too! I have one of those--my grandson, Nathan.

    Quote:Yeah, I wish I had known before I got chicks how fast they were gonna grow. [​IMG] I would have made better accomodations ahead of time. We kept moving them to bigger and bigger brooders. Went through 4 alltogether before the big coop outside!! And worth every one [​IMG]

    We have a lawn mower box in the garage. We are gonna have to prep it tonight. Our chicks are almost 2 weeks old and I swear they have doubled in size in a week.
