Chicks Outside!

We have had our chicks for a week now and so they are about 2 1/2 weeks old.  They are growing so fast!  We decided to let them out into the grass and see how they liked it.  For the most part they stayed right by us in the shade.  They were so cute.  They enjoyed pecking the ground and sampling the grass.

A few of them went out into the sun to warm up.  They would lay down and put their wing out to let it get more sun.  Too cute!

It's so hard to believe that they are still so young... they look like little hens now!

The kids loved watching them and "helping" them stay together :)

It won't be long before they have a permanent home outside.  They need some space and our yard could use some pest control ;).
