Chicks Eat Strawberry!

So...nothing much going on. The chickies are little mini chickens. We re-established their names. Ping and Pong, Mrs. Poppers, Bashful, and Pimpam, and Mocha, Pogo, Ginny, and Duffy! I was too lazy to go down and dump some strawberry stems, so I gave it to the chicks through the porch. They really wanted to eat it! There's really nothing going on, well, they really are flying up to roost on the big roosts a lot. But they are going to grow up soon so we need to say good-bye! Bye-bye!

Letting the Chicks Free!!!! (Hopefully)

Well, we haven't quite let them out yet. It's still in the 40's at night. But they are hoppity-doppity feathery and really eager to be out! They dump their food more than once a week, which is annoying. They are not very good at cleaning it out once we take the feeder out. Their box is tiny now-and at one point it seemed huge! Impossible! We moved them to the basement Thursday. The buffs, Ping & Pong, are great at just sitting on your thumb. Sometimes we find that they have squeezed out through the lattice. It's getting harder, and sometimes they get lost outside. When we take them outside in the box, they sure are getting heavy! Hopefully we will get more pictures-and send them out for good this weekend!
P.S. This was Ronit
