Here are a couple of the new chicks...teenagers now, fully feathered and ready to start venturing out of the warmth of the nursery. I have started opening their front door each morning giving them access to their yard. A few of them have boldly been trying out their wings and picking around in the grass. However, most are still too timid to venture very far from the only home they have ever known. With a little time, they will all venture out. Timidness is not a chicken trait. They may be called chickens, but they rarely are "chicken!"
