Chick Update

The babies have, so far, acclimated well into the flock. All though I would say they are still on the fringe. They come out of the coop into the yard later in the day, never early, and if they have full run of the coop, they are everywhere, checking everything out. However, if the big birds are in the coop they pretty much stay in their safety cage, only coming out after everyone has roosted.

This is where I found them yesterday. All the other chickens were out in the yard. See that one on the far left, yeah, pretty sure that's a roo.

All though, in this picture he sure looks like a Dolly!

Gosh, the comb and wattles on that little guy are very pronounced. I'd guess roo, too. They've grown up so quickly!!!

I love your roosts. Dad made some wonderful roosts and I consider them funtional art.

Ang: Thanks they are cute at this stage. And he behaves like a roo too so far.

Danni: His tail feathers look diff too. Yes, they have.

Gail: Thanks! My hubby made them. He recently cut some of the hangover edges off and I hated to see it. It added character to the coop.
