My chicks are now six weeks old (well, on Tuesday 3/13!) and seem to have chickening down to a science. They come out into the run automatically (the door is always open) in the morning and I feed them. Then it's time for a nap, some of them like to roost, some just sit in the straw. They go into the coop at night when it gets dark. I still check to see if they are all in there especially if a freeze is expected. Ethel is my runt, she looks awful! The only "problem" (which is not a problem really) is that they won't go inside at dark unless the light is on in the coop. Not the heat lamp, that's gone, just the ceiling light. If the light is off they just pile up outside the coop door! Funny chickens! They know who I am (I didn't handle them as babies) and come to the sound of my voice. Two of them in particular (Ethel is one) likes to follow me and I have to be careful they don't try to leave the coop with me. We are all in love! I've shown you mine, now show me yours!
