Getting bigger by the day, the chicks are thriving and learning to stretch their wings! They zip all around their miniature coop in a tiny game of bumper cars.
On the warmer days we’ve been having, we open up the curtain on their coop to let in fresh air and sunlight. Soon they will be big enough that we will start letting them out onto some grass in a little enclosure. The enclosure has a roof and is a tight mesh to protect them from hawks, stray cats, and other bold predators, but its open bottom allows them access to grass, bugs, and soil so that they can express their inner chicken-ness and practice for the big time.
