The Baby Chicks

Our 4 baby chicks are doing very well; even the little one that almost died.
I've been putting them outdoors so they can enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures; our box trap works well for keeping the chicks safe.

We have more eggs in the incubator; hopefully we will get a bigger hatching this time.

As you know, I have 4 baby chicks now too and yesterday I put them outside in the larger pen but separated from the big hens. This way they can all get used to seeing each other. Worse come to worse, when they are bigger and if they don't get along, I will separate some of the chickens and put them in the "duck" pen, that we're converting into a rabbit pen. Anyway, did I mention that my larger hens are now laying? We're averaging about 3 eggs a day. I'm thinking one hasn't layed yet, but 3 for sure are laying.
