Chicks at 1 week old

All six chicks are doing well and the chicken co-parenting is happening, we are such a progressive, liberal household! The mummies took the chicks out for their first walk on grass today. They wobbled down the ramp and spent a few minutes outside the broody coop. Happy chickens!

In a few more weeks we plan to move them into a sectioned off area of the main chicken house run, to give them more space and freedom. We will wait a few months to introduce them to the big chickens, but they will be next door neighbours, so hopefully they will have plenty of opportunity to get used to each other.

More chick pics!
