    I put the big babies outside Sat. morning. I followed the advice of someone, I don't remember who, on this site and stapled some chicken wire to the big door, so they could see outside. Of course, at night they were on lockdown. Anyway, now I should let them into the run. I'm putting it off. What if something happens, what if they freak out, what if, what if, what if.... Maybe I should put down the coffee. [​IMG]

    So far they all seem to like it, though it may be because of the treats. I have a bad tendency to feed my animals any time I feel guilty or worried about them. So far we've had watermelon, millet spray and pecorino cheese rind. Last time I went out, the snacks were gone and half of the birds were back in the coop.They have crumbles and water outside, but I think they're addicted to the guinea pig waterers in the coop. Something about pecking that little ball makes 'em frenzy.
