    While waiting for the yard to be fenced, I decided to just put up a small pen and attach it to their run so I could introduce the boys to their new pool. It's been toasty lately, and they have been lying in their 3 gal. water bowl, so I thought I'd give it a try. The boys are almost 6 weeks old, so they won't be allowed access to the pool unattended for a few more weeks. To entice them I did the old mealworms-up-the-steps trick, which got them to the entrance platform, but that's where caution won. :)
