    This morning we were out loving the babies and one was trying to climb up the sides of the cage and the other was flying straight up in the area...about 6 inches. They're only 1.5 weeks old!! Crazy chicks! The brooder is in a small area of the older coop so we are just going to section off an area in the middle and give them a little more room. I'll post a picture when done.

    I had to build a bigger brooder the day I brought my chicks home!

    They stayed outside all day today (2&3 weeks old). Had a blast. Every day they have stayed out a little longer. Dogs were checking them out today...they were good. Missy has already figured out that she's supposed to WATCH them. Parker still rushes at the run but I think it's just because she likes watching them scatter. Both scattering and rushing are less in evidence than they were this morning.

    All in all, a great chicken day!

    It IS funny when the tiny ones fly straight up!

    They are going crazy! Flying left and right and running around. Guess they were getting bored.
