I opened up the little coop door and proped it back and Mama hen gladly came out to have a walk and check out the feeding ground.
I watched the chicks and they were a bit scared to join the great big world of fending for themselves.
|Larry was the brave one.|
One of the chicks got stepped
on but there were no injuries.
My chicks are still very small but they are mixed with a banty (or bantum and some say) breed. (frizzles)
Its been fun to see them out and about and they also got their feathers dusted with D.E. just like everyone else to kill their mites.
Last night I noticed that Mom takes them back to the little coop to sleep at night. I thought it wss so sweet. God is awesome and shows that to us through the instincs of our animals.
|Mom and chicks snug as a bug.|
