The chicks are growing so quickly, they turned 3 weeks old on the 16th. My Mom and I took them outside for the first time a week ago. They loved scratching around in the grass. They laid down in the sun and stretched out their wings as if to say “Aaaah!”
I took Chunky Buff out of the box and she settled right down on the grass. Then she wanted to go back to her friends so I put her back.
These little, feathery fluffballs make me so happy! No matter what horror stories people may tell you about poo and stink and pecking, chickens are great birds.
