I've been letting the hen out with her chicks cuz it's so fun to watch them running around the yard. It does have it's risks though. I usually worry more about hawks and cats, but sometimes I have to worry about my cucumbers.
These two are doing a good job of looking nonchalant. They're just hanging out, no big thing.
But when I came back later they were stomping all over everything. They aren't so interested in the plants as what's under them. They scratch through all the dirt looking for bugs.
Here they are high tailing it to escape my rage.
The chicks are at that awkward stage of half feathers half fuzz and all legs. It's not a good look.
And back in jail, where they belong
