Its been three weeks since we got our Chicks and they are growing like weeds.
The bin was to small for them now and they wanted OUT.
I opened the top and out flew one of the chicks to sit on the rim.
Another one got on my arm and climbed up it. So we lined the dog cage with card board to keep the shavings, warmth and heads in. Well two out of three is good. The shavings are all over the floor. Groan.
After freaking a bit. Look how big they are now. Emma has the long tail and Lexys is still small.
They proceeded to go crazy over the fluff, They slipped and slid, scratched and rolled having a ball.
Color them VERY Happy.
|These were taken on the 9th. In a smaller bin while we cleaned the bigger bin|
|My favorite chick is the one in the corner. Suzi Q.. look at her tail. She is the one that climbs up my arm She has a white strip from neck to belly and is getting bigger then the rest. Also the most friendly so far.|
The coop being framed in.
The window is the one we had to replace last year because the glass inside was cracked.
Its a new window but we had to replace the whole thing because of the glass being cracked.
but its sealed and will make a great window for the chicken coop.
Yesterday we spent a couple hours painting the wood white before putting it all together which is easier then doing it all when done. You can see the nesting boxes to the left. The outside will be the color of our house.
Its been lovely the last few days and he hopes to get the front on tomorrow.
Con in his element..
