Chicks Are Growing Up

 The chicks are getting so big!  We moved the chicks into a bigger box on our back porch. 

Our Spitzhauben aka Mohawk Chicken

 But they quickly outgrew that too!  They are still too young to go with the adult chickens without protection and we have planned on enlarging the chicken run and put them in there first, but we have just not had time to get that done.  So we got the bright idea to put them in the rabbit pen.  After multiple dog attacks we but a fenced area for our rabbit hutches.  There is no coop, but we fashioned some little shelters for them and they have gotten most of their feather and between that and straw they will be warm enough at least for a few weeks.  It's a little ramshackle, but they seem to love it!  Those are some happy little chicks!
