    Well, we have our 4-6 week old chicks out in their coop and run now. Dh and I pulled some lawn chairs down to the coop when he got home fom work, grabbed a few beers, and spent 2, yes 2 hours outside watching the kids!! [​IMG] Can't believe we spent that much time watching "chick tv," but the chicks are just a riot to watch!! [​IMG] I think we're obsessed!! [​IMG]

    The were just a riot!! We have 22 chicks, 4 roos and 18 hens. The maximum chicks we'd have out at a time was 13, go figure!! The dogs would spook them, and they'd head inside. Then the roos would come out. They will only use half of the run right now. The funniest was watching them chase flies. If I didn't have to feed my actual kids dinner, I'd still be out there! lol [​IMG]
