Blog Hop and First Day Out

Friday was sunny and warm enough for the chicks' first day outside. An old cockatiel cage is now a mini chicken tractor. They can be moved to fresh areas after they eat the tenderest grass buds and mini-fertilize the area.

At three weeks old they're scruffy with a mix of old fluff and new feathers. When offered some small worms, Bazooka quickly snatched one up and ate it. Maewest eyed hers with great suspicion. Bazooka must have regretted eating the one, for she declined a second offering.

Thinking about making a break for freedom?


  1. How nice that it's warm enough to get a little fresh air! :)

    Bazooka and Maewest sure are cute.
