My girls are 4 weeks and it finally warmed up enough for them to go out for a few hours. For the first time I put them in my fenced garden area that I just tilled for planting, figured it'd be easier to catch them in a smaller space versus the entire fenced yard; plus this is the first time my dogs have seen them really outside of the brooder cage. All went well, and I think it wore the chicks and my little dog out 'cause they're all sleeping now! In the garden...waiting for them to come out of the box! They finally came out, thanks to their favorite treat...cucumber! The dogs watching them. The chicks look so big in their brooder, but so small out in the great big world They seemed to have fun, though Thanks for letting me share! d EEK! This posted twice, can someone please remove the duplicate...or tell me how to do that!
