A TRIP TO THE GARDEN, CHICK STYLE

With our temperatures in the 80's this weekend, we decided to get the chicks accustomed to the outdoors a bit!  Since my garden is fenced in, we took them there so we could watch over them a bit easier.  My girls helped me keep an eye on them. 
 They were very curious of all of their surroundings! 

 They will be two weeks old on Monday and are still primarily in their brooder requiring a temperature gradient between 85 and 90. 
 They became very adventuresome in the garden, exploring everything that moved, and even things that didn't!
Needless to say, I think they enjoyed their outing greatly.  Their feathers are starting to form very well and they are even starting to use their wings a bit!

About two or three more weeks in the brooder and they will be ready for their new outside home and coop!  Happy Gardening!
