2 Week Peepday!

Today the chickies are 2 weeks old, and looking more and more like “real” chickens everyday.  Tomorrow we hope to move the finches out of their old aviary in the laundry room and into the new, bigger one in the sunroom, and when this happens, Ruth and Ilse will take up residence in the old aviary until they are big enough to live outside in their Eglu.  This will be a vast improvement on the 24″ L x 18″ W x 18″ H plastic storage bin where they currently live, as the old aviary is 8′ L x 4′ W x 8′ H and will give them plenty of room to run around and even do a bit of flying (until they’re too heavy to fly anymore) in a safe enclosure.  Check out how much they’ve grown!

Our sweet peeps at 2 weeks old... looks like they traded legs!

    I just noticed that Ruth and Ilse look like they traded legs with each other!
