    These are my darlings. 3 australorps, 2 sex links of unknown type and 1 wyandotte also unknown type. They are outside in the playpen and doing fine. 5 week old tomorrow. Coop not quite finished yet due to my being sick, but birds are happy and trying to fly out of the playpen. My yard has a six foot fence so I am hoping they will stay in once I let them out the pen to free range. Yeah the pics suck taken with my blackberry and my girls are a bit camera shy. I lifted the netting to get the pics and they all dashed to the other end of the pen. They have all been healthy and active. I purchased at the feed store as they get theirs from the hatchery I was going to order from anyway. Now my hubbie wants some white birds to go with the black ones.

    They are so cute looking. I'm trying to picture what my little day-old Australorps will look like in 5 weeks. I just brought them home from the hatchery. Good luck on your free ranging whenever you're ready.
