    My girls will be 6 weeks this Sunday [​IMG] They're still living in a playpen brooder in my living room. They've been off the heat lamp for about a week (as it was in the 90's and humid every single day here in CT!) now the weather has changed, it's chilly--at least I think so. I put socks on for the first time in a week *LOL* It's 60 out now and a low of 48 expected. I wish Mother Nature would make up her mind already! Thinking I'll have to turn the light back on tonight [​IMG]

    I've taken the girls out a few times outside to play, my kids Little Tikes playhouse came in handy for that!

    One of my nearly 2 year old twins was reading his buddies a book! [​IMG]

    One girl always comes flying out of the brooder to see me when I move the top (a oven rack)! She's a cutie pie!

    What type of chicken is the brooder flyer? I have two that look just like them and I have not a clue to what they are. I bought them at tsc. They are the nicest that I have of the bunch. Sometimes I wish I would have gotten more of them. [​IMG]

    I cant blame him though we already have 6 6-week old pullets and built the coop for just barely 8 birds.

    I think he is on to chicken math.


    POOP

    I know what you mean my fiance said I can only have 5 but when I went to the store I told him, "Well we should get 7 just in case 2 die." Let's just say none died. [​IMG] and on top of that I "forgot" I orderd 6 from the gas station nearby and they called me 2 weeks ago to pick them up. They sent me 3 xtras. 2 passed away. So I turned half of one of our old garages that we don't use into a coop. So now I have 7 , 7 week old chicks outside and 7, 2 week old inside.... oh and did i mention i won an auction on ebay 12 silkie eggs for $6.50 .Just the other day I caught my hubby playing with one in the brooder. He says he didnt want them but we know the truth. [​IMG]
