Chicken moving day!

Today we put our older batch of chicks (this year’s “teenagers”) outside, into one half of the coop.  They are still a little leery – they went from a cardboard box with a screen on top (to keep them from flying out) to a large open pen and half of a building. So they are a little overwhelmed. Plus on the other side of the fence are some large creatures that look similar, but are a little scary – the adult chickens.  Everyone is settling in ok though.  We’ll be moving the smaller chicks in a couple weeks, when they are big enough and have all their feathers.  For now, here are the teens in their new home.

They have a lot of room.

They settled in a bit and started playing, jumping around and sparring with each other
