    First of all it has been about ninety to one hundred degrees here for the past month! Gosh! So i have been having to wait till about seven at night to let my 3 week olds outside in their little pen. There are 16 of them and they have a coop and run for when they get older but i got a small cage thing from a friend just so they can have little adventures outside. When i put them in there they took off to the water! Thats how hot it is! But after that i put them into the shade so that it wouldnt be so hot for them, they liked that. [​IMG] They have now realized that they can fly a little so now they are taking little flights around the cage. It is so funny to watch![​IMG] Later on they found a cricket in the cage, at first they were like "What in the world is this thing?" But when it started to hop around they took off after it! They would chase it but when they got kinda close they would back up like they were scared, i guess they just wanted to chase it not eat it. [​IMG] Anyways i hope im not boring you, i cant wait till they are big though! Ahh!

    Happy Chickening! [​IMG]
