    Today was so lovely and sunny, so I just had to take some of the chickies out! They LOVED it! There was wing stretching...

    and lots of pecking around...

    most stayed stuck to us like glue! Even climbing all over the kids...

    We all had a GREAT time! It reached a high of about 74 today, so it was perfect weather for them. [​IMG] It was soooo cute that when we'd try to get up and walk away, they all fly or scamper after us just as quick as they can! BTW, this is not ALL of our babies. These are what we beleive are our hens. These are the friendly biddies we play with everyday. [​IMG]

    Awwwww!! How old are the munchkins?

    The one facing the camera in the third picture is darling!

    (Ha, 74 would be nice :3 It's barely spring and it feels like the high is usually 80-something)

    I love it! Was that chickenduck, front right in the second picture?

    Don't you love how they're starting to get a little raggedy with their baby fluff coming out between the feathers. Our babies are the same age, and they look like that too. It is so funny to me!

    cookinmom...yep! Thats our little ChickenDuck! My daughter is praying its a female because then she's garaunteed a 'place' in our flock...lol [​IMG] We have one chick that a SUPER fluffy right now, it looks really weird!! Its got fluff sticking up on its head and just looks really goofy with their still oversized feet!

    akahn01....We are raising Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers. We love their uniquness and colors, and their personalities are so darling!

    zimmy....they will be 3 weeks old on Tuesday. Already nearly fully feathered and they each weigh close to a pound! They LOVED it outside and we had a blast having them climb all over us! It was like they were all saying "Wait! Dont leave me here!" and when we'd walk alway they'd charge after us in kind of a half fly half run thing that made us all laugh! [​IMG]

    tnokie....some of them are EE's and some are Ameraucanas. I love their individuality! [​IMG] Its nice to have chicks that all look unique...makes them easier to name! [​IMG]

    I've been taking them out everyday now for about an hour or so at a time, and they LOVE it! Its funny though that if I get up or walk away, they are right on my heels peeping at me like "Hey! Wait for me Mom!" I laugh everytime! Cute little boogers sure grow on ya...[​IMG]
