Verna and Roostie like to visit the chicks through the fence. The babies moved outside at 5 weeks, into a small pen with a heat lamp. Last week they moved into their new digs.. still with a heat lamp but they are 8 weeks old now so I can probably turn it off.
Verna (the Buff Orpington) was trading pecks through the fence with Sara this morning. I have no idea what breed Sara is. I don't care as long as she's a SHE. I worry that all 4 will turn out to be roosters. There are two Barred Rocks and two somethingorothers. One day soon (I hope) I'll get the coop painted and the pen finished.
