Littles Are Growing

May 11:

Those Littles are really growing. They are now 2 1/2 weeks old and have gone from their boxes in the garage to the big house of their own. That isn't the Hen House, of course. The fence separates them from the Hennies and the Rooster. But the Hennies and the Rooster often show up outside and peer in.

The little Chicks are now going outside to play, scratch and eat bugs in the grasses. They run and they fly short distances. They are easily startled and stop in their tracks with their heads high peering all around. And they collapse into a rug of down and feathers for naps. Richard put some boards in their house for roosts. They like that.
