First Day In the Chicken House

Well the little baby chicks are now past the brooding room size and are so happy to be where they can come and go out into the pen. Ive been watching them today and let me tell you they are some happy chickens. Our guenie is growing. we started out with three and have one left. the other two didnt make it as babies but this one did and thinks he's a chicken lol .......he's around more for fun. We expect he will probably fly away one day as there are several around us that you can hear and they can be hard to keep at home lol. The little babies are frizzels and silkies there is an old english baby rooster and I also say in the video one looks like a mille fluer but its not the breed i was thinking it was. we will have to wait and see what it grows into there are a few white cochin(feather legged breeds) that she could actully resemble all our chicks are pure bred or supposed to be lol .......so will up date it when we figure it out :)..........ive put a short video in to see them enjoying the outdoors

They are getting big! Looks like you will get lots of eggs. I miss having fresh eggs but hubby isn't ready to build a contained coop that will keep the cayotes out. He has been working on the garden and the fruit trees.
