Our new babies
Here are our new babies: 5 days old, and already almost twice as big as when we got them last Tuesday. We're planning a chicken coop to house laying hens, but couldn't resist buying them at one day old!
The kids think they're fantastic, and the chicks are getting used to being handled by us all. Problem is, it's winter here in Oz and too cold to put them outside while they're so little. So I have six little chicks living in my dining room in a box. When we get them out for a little run they poop EVERYWHERE so I'm glad I have a steam cleaner to disinfect my floor tiles!
