    They're 7 weeks old this week and this is their 2nd day spending all day in the coop without being locked in the cage. No pecking from the big girls and they're all eating and drinking fine having a blast.

    For the next few weeks they'll still be in the cage at night in order to give them a bit of extra protection, since I'm not sure if the big girls will be roosting with them. The bigger three don't really roost together, they do now share the same side of the coop but in different spots.
