    Our little fuzzy butts began growing sooooo fast and flying ??!!!! [​IMG] and it was obvious they werent gonna be able to stay in that little brooder that seemed so big a week ago.... [​IMG]
    soooo...this is what we had to do yesterday :


    ....fortunately we had the coop done, so we just took a 4x4 corner and made a temporary brooder pen for them!! Now they are all acting like big chickens !! [​IMG] I go out and sit in the middle of them and I am in awe of how big they are getting and how fast they are growing ?!!!
    Next thing will be letting them venture out in the run!! I feel like a mother to teenagers!! [​IMG]

    I feel the same way! Between the chicks who are just growing so darn quickly and the ducks who are full grown and are not quite 4 weeks old yet, I feel like an old mother hen!!

    They grow up way too fast! Enjoy them while they're little!

    Mary Ann, i can't keep mine in the bathtub. i was going to put them out today, but storms are coming and i didn't want them to freak out, so they will have free range of the downstairs bath, plus i want to keep them with me for a little bit longer
