We’ve had the chicks just over a month and they’ve changed from cute little fluffballs to real chickens. These are Rhode Island Reds, purchased at the Danvers Agway.
Here are some photos.
Getting a drink of water. The stones are in the water dish so they don’t fall in and drown!
Standing on the window sill — look at those feathers! The chick that is second to right was been late to feather out. We call that one Chick Pea. Based on a couple of indicator, she “might” be a he!
Leo and I improvised a hanging feeder. We’re trying to give them a little culture at the same time.
Out in the grass for the first time!
This is how we move them in and out — through the window.
Lidia with chicks. She has chickens at home — she’s a pro!
