free range chickens – 17 days old

The chicks had their first outing in the backyard today. Only for about 15 minutes, as they need to work up to longer periods of time outside and also grow more feathers before they can really withstand the weather, but it was a fairly warm day, so we gave them a taste of the great outdoors. They were a little bewildered at first, but soon began to enjoy the taste of freedom, and the hidden treasures (worms and slugs) in the grass. They had a little help from Jonah, Mae, & cousin Calum, of course. It was also fun to see their feathers and colors in the sunlight. The boys’ combs are starting to get red!
