    Our little ones are going on 2 weeks old now and had a nice little 20 minute outdoor session while I was cleaning out their brooder. The definitely seemed to enjoy it.


    This is Allie...AKA Alpha who we believe to be a red sex link...whom I interrupted while she was attempting to dust bath on rock hard red clay lol.

    Yea they def love the outdooors! I used a large laundry basket to cover them while I was cleaning and then when i was finished I lifted the basket. They are scared cause its new and honestly keep close together near you. Actually a couple of the buff girls would climb up in my lap to snuggle down lol. Our yard is fenced in as well so i figured they would only get so far [​IMG]
