|Here are the chicks in their new home in the garage!|
I forgot how quickly they grow! The first picture shows them in a galvanized tub in Rory's room. Well, they soon grew out of that and into a larger plastic bin. But then they figured out how to get out of there. One of them even decided to sleep perched on the edge of the bin. So we decided that it was time for them to move out to the garage. They're still too little to go outside, but Rory was going to be sleeping with chickens in his bed soon if we didn't do something! So they're in a wooden pen in the garage with two heat lamps. It's going to be interesting to figure out how to introduce them to the two older birds, but I guess they will all just have to get along somehow! We also didn't have a dog last time, as we got Honey about a year after we got the chickens. So we're trying to convince her that they are feathery puppies. So far, she's snuffed at them a bit but that's all. She may make a good chicken dog yet!
