    Finally, my chicks have a permanent address! They have moved from a brooder to a kiddie pool and now to their coop.

    I have 6 - 6-week old chicks. Two black australorp, two light brahmas and two easter eggers (ordered araucaunas but you know how that goes). I actually just put them in this morning but the kids opened the pop hole door and they all flew out. I have a temporary run up (snow fencing) so they can go out I just have to watch carefully. Hopefully we will get the permanent run up this week (it will be attached just to the left of the man door). I will get some pics of them when I get them in for the night tonight!

    Some of the girls

    Okay, I put them in a little early today so they could get used to their new set up before it gets dark. They are a little uneasy but not too bad.

    Here are my girls!
