Well, today was the day. The chicks are now living outside permanently. They've only been out in their new digs for about 2 hours and I miss them already. I loved to peek into the downstairs bathroom and see them a gazillion times a day.
I miss Chirpy flying up and perching on my back as soon as I reached in to pluck poo and wood chips out of their food. I miss hearing them peep madly as they sorted out the sleeping arrangements each night. They had their own mini chicken circus going on. Each night the final solution was to shove the feeder off its wooden pedestal and sleep on the pedestal with Redder in prime position and Chirpy snuggled up with her head on top of Redder.
Eric will have to share the story of their trip outside. I just can't do it. Instead, I'll leave you with a few early morning photos from the last week or so. They're not terribly flattering of me, but the chicks look great and that's all that matters.
