Every time we removed the chicken wire trapping them in the brooder, several would instantly make a break for it. And they were getting quite messy and smelly to boot. Time to move out!
Maggie and I prepped the coop and moved them down this afternoon. While they will later have a fenced area in which to roam, for today, we have them in their, rather spacious, coop.
That's Putin, the bully.
They seem happy with their expanded quarters and new food sources. Mmm, bugs. I'm off to turn on the heat lamp. Not sure they are ready to be completely on their own just yet. Call me an over protective Mom.
