I let the little ones out in their run for the day, all nice and safe. They have half grass half sand, and really love to dust themselves.
This evening I went out, put down fresh pine shavings on the house floor, fresh water and food, clipped a heat lamp on the window, pointed down towards the floor.
Just peeked in on them when I took the dog out to go potty. They are all snuggled together in the fresh pine shavings under the heat lamp. They are gonna be just fine. I do love those chickens.
This is their first night outside. They seem to be pretty happy to be out of the brooder. I do miss them being in the house, perching on the side of the brooder, just waiting for me to come by and give them a little pet. Oh well, they are getting on up there now, got to let them go, got to get ready for the next five babies coming in a week and a half. :)
