First time out for the "5 Week old" Chicks
« on: April 11, 2011, 08:22 »
I lwet my 5 week old chicks out in the garden yesterday.  Well, I hoofed the cage outside and opened the door.
Bluebell (The Speckledy) quite liked grass, for eating, not standing on and would peck at it from inside the cage.  The rest would just charge back into the cage as soon as we let go of them.
But, they did get half an hour in the sun.
We use chemicals in this garden, just as god intended

It was warmer outside than in, so we thought we might as well try them for a bit, and introduce them to the neighbours a little bit as well......
