Countdown to Coop

The chicks are almost 4 weeks old now and we're not sure they're going to make it much longer in our garage. When they're little and lightweight, they can fly pretty well! This week, we've been taking them outside for some Chicken Run Time. Kyle and I made the chicken run on Saturday, and this was their first introduction to it. They all stayed in one end of it, seemingly unaware of how much space we had given them.
Elena stayed right by the run and babysat while the rest of us played.

Kyle takes his job as pitcher very seriously:
What a wind-up!!

A few years ago I finally talked my hubby into letting us have chickens. We had the best time sitting close and watching them interact and learn how to sit on a perch. Simple pleasures, huh?
Love your blog!

Yeah for chickens! And it looks like you all had fun too while they were outside. I can't wait to see pictures of the kids collecting the first eggs!
