They really like being out in the chicken yard. They are separated from our only remaining hen Ruby, by chicken fabric, but almost immediately they found a small opening, scurried under and it and then ran wild around a disapproving Ruby who clucked and occasionally lunged but did not do any real pecking. She reminds me of some cartoon character, Big Mama, I can almost see her wearing an apron, running after the chicks.
They are about 4 1/2 weeks and haven't yet entered the awkward stage. They are so cute and seem to think humans are their roosting posts and will jump on any available surface!
Ruby takes a break from nannying those pesky chicks.
