    First warm day, I wanted to take them out and show them the world!

    They didn't want to go into the basket to go outside, then they didn't want to get out of the basket!

    When they got their courage up, they really enjoyed exploring.

    One chick found a worm! The others chased her and tried to grab it away from her, but she wolfed it down!

    One of the best moments was when I was on the other side of the yard and the girls came running over to me. They looked so sweet!

    How sweet. We had a beautiful day Tuesday and I let my babies out. After they got over their fear of the big world, they had lots of fun!! It's so much fun to watch them, isn't it?

    Quote:about 4 weeks. They're starting to get the dinosaur look, instead of the cute little puffballs.

    They had such a good time digging around. I think they were a little freaked out by the sounds of the wild birds (chickadees mostly) and other ambient noise of the neighborhood.

    Mini, yeah, they go from being adorable little puffballs to looking like something that escaped from Juraissic Park!
    Your pics are very cute.
