Silly little chicks

My little pullets finally have names, this is Lucy and Ethel. And my little Barred Rock is Starla.

Last week my chicks turned 5 weeks and were quickly outgrowing their brooder, I knew it was time to move them to coop. But the day before I moved them I wanted them to get an hour or so in the yard.

They cracked me up, their personalities are already so strong!
Lucy and Ethel don’t like being apart, well I should say Ethel hates being away from Lucy. She started calling out for Lucy when she cannot see her. They are ridiculous.

When I first brought them out they ran around in a group with their wings half open, their beaks open, and clicking their tongues. This was new to me.

The funniest thing to me was that Lucy kept flying up to me and wanting to be in my face.

That’s all for now, tomorrow I will share their move to their new home.
