8 weeks old

The chickens have been outside, in the coop and the yard for about a week. They are funny and know things that keep them safe. I looked out the window the other day and didn’t see them in the yard…then I looked up and saw a hawk flying around. They run inside when they hear a squirrel making that noise that squirrels make. When Boomer mowed the grass the huddled up in the coop.

They are getting further and further from the coop (you can’t see that from this picture) but that are getting around in the netting, eating grass, clover bugs and anything else they can find. When it starts getting dark, the get themselves into the coop.

It takes a few minutes but they all get a spot eventually as high up as they can manage.
