The chicks are now five weeks old. Getting bigger and harder to catch. They spend the day out here in their coop but go into the garage at night.
They are having their most favorite snack ever. They go crazy when I put it down. It is Kefir which is full of good things for them and is full of probiotics. It is of course good for humans too. I put it in the girls smoothies.
Okay, there is the little house. It is an old cupboard turned on its side. The laying boxes will be in the top section and hubby will put the ramp on when they are ready to start going up there, but for now it is closed off to them. The bottom has a roosting pole for them to sleep on. The door can close but we have it propped open for now. I will move the bundle of shavings behind the lil house when the ramp goes on. We spent $0 on the house portion. It is all scrap from the coop and from our garage. Not attractive but free.
I have been playing with chickens indoors as well. I think in honor of my new girls I will have chicken centerpiece on the dining table. Just brought together things I had around the house.
Those are the only eggs I have for right now.
