Sorry to have been MIA lately, besides being ultra busy with work, my daughter and I just got back from 6 days in Orlando, FL. It was a great trip minus some small obstacles and we are glad to be home and with our loved ones and animals again.
The chicks are turning into chickens! I couldn't believe how much they grew while we were away. So it was time to put them into the chicken coop my hubby got for me. The coop can be moved around and I will probably reposition it around the yard so the chickens can take advantage of the grass and fertilize the yard for me every week or so. The coop is not going to be big enough for them in the long run so we will put up a movable fence so them can "roam" within the fence during the day where it is safe.
Here is some pics of the coop. The chicks are hiding under the coop house. You will see where I stuck the lamp in where one of the windows are to keep it warm at time. The babies still need warmth during these cold nights.
