    They keep growing, and all are healthy. They have now experienced hard boiled egg and grapes. Loved them both. All seem to be getting a long so far. Brooder needs a second roost added now that the heat plate has been removed.

    For size comparison, here they are in the brooder at 2 weeks and 5 weeks:

    Lol- not easily, but we used a laundry basket flipped on its side lined with paper. This way they could only escape out the front. We cropped out my kid’s hands that were in front trying to keep them in!
