    Juliet has been in a hutch in the shed for the past three weeks raising her babies. Today i put her back in her old coop. Kept them closed inside for a spell, then decided to open the door and let them out. They're not too sure, at first.

    One chick falls out and they all decide to take the plunge,

    Juliet's sister Natalia comes over to investigate. You can see she's pretty amazed at seeing the chicks.

    But pretty soon she snugs up with her sister. i think she's happy to have her back. (PS - Please ignore the poop on Juliet's bottom)
