I belive they can fly

I took the chicks to the greenhouse recently for a little roaming time. They are 2 and 1/2 weeks old now. It was raining so you can hear the sound of the rain in the video below:

"Look how smart we are now!"

Time for a taller box!

By the way, in case you were wondering, Jackie's Secret Garden is still a garden! But I have to admit that I've been spending a lot of time with the chicks. The garden is growing well with only minimal input from me...just sowing some seeds, transplanting, snapping off tomato suckers and tying them up periodically. We've had some nice warm weather the past few days and the summer crops are really starting to take off.

So cute! I thin it is universal that all chicks like to perch on the waterer.

PS appliance boxes make great chick brooders.

They're very cute. That's a great idea about the appliance box! For next time, that is.

Thanks, Ali. I appreciate you stopping by my blog.

Stefaneener, I agree. The bigger the box, the better!

Kacee, thanks for posting on my blog! The chicks are very happy and so cute. I'm a little jealous because I think they love Travis the most!
