    They are just eating chick chow, spinach and peas with the occasional clump of clover dug up out of the yard.

    Heidi, the fawn and white, is HUGE, I'm wondering if she is going to stay a she or become Heinrich. No great trauma if she is a he. Right now they are still baby peeping so I'll have to wait for the voice change to see what she is.

    Last night they got booted out of the brooder into the outside duck house by an emergency with my husbands Japanese chickens. They seem just fine, not even sitting under the heat lamp. If it's nice this weekend I'll let them out into their run, for now they are locked in their house peering out the wire door.
