The three chicks, Blondie, Blackie, and Baldie, are now about 10 weeks old. I’ve switched their feed to the next level, as directed by the feed shop, and Eric and I are in the last stages of planning the coop and house. We’ve sited it near the compost pile so I can easily deal with what I clean out of it each week, and it’s in a spot that I hope will make it convenient to walk around it and gather eggs, etc. We’ll be incorporating a secure run for them, but I plan to let them roam the fenced backyard on weekends (supervised) when they’re a bit older. Here are some photos – they’ve grown so quickly!
