Welcome to the Real World (5 weeks), a set on Flickr.
With 2 days of 80s, we felt it was warm enough to bring our giant chicks outside. It did snow 8 days ago…so this feels good. Besides, the coop has a door on it now!
The birds love scratching in the dirt, eating worms we’ve found them, and generally just pecking around — together. If one wanders off, she quickly gets scared and starts chirping for her flockmates.
I think they are still in shock at this great, big world. Remember, they’d never seen the sun before or touched the earth, or foraged for a box elder bug.
