“The Weekly Bleat: Brave New World”

The chicks are about 7 weeks old and looking more and more like miniature chickens these days.  They’re finally ready to come out of the coop and explore the outdoors.  Although it will be a while before they’re free-ranging in the pasture, these little guys have plenty of room inside the safety of the aviary for now.

Today was the first time the chicks have felt the warmth of the sun on their faces and bodies.  They were a bit uncertain about leaving their cozy coop, but it wasn’t long until they were out and frolicking in the sunshine.

Welcome to their “coming out” party!  Here’s a little music to get the party started.  😉


    • Thank you! I’m not sure–two of the chicks are supposed to be Araucanas. However, I’ve been noticing that they don’t look the same. I started worrying that one may be a rooster. Actually, they don’t look at all like the Araucanas I had last year. I guess time will tell! I’ll keep you posted. Hope all of your feathery babies are well. 🙂
