Buffy’s babies have grown so much! They’re all feathered out now and running all over the property chasing bugs and scratching in the grass. I’ve got to say that it’s a million times easier to let the chickens raise up the babies!
A couple of weeks ago she moved them into the henhouse with the rest of the chickens. I was surprised to see them all perched way up high and thought, “how in the world did they get up there?” I guess they’re light enough and those little wings can carry them pretty high. I should dig out the ramp I used to have in there when my layers were just little pullets. I took it out when they were big enough that they didn’t need the ramp. Once those Wellie girls start to put on some weight I think they’ll have a harder time hoping up that high.
I guess I’ll be getting my first eggs from these girls in November (or maybe even October). How egg-citing!
