The chicks are 6 weeks old!

I had a bit of a scare today!
I looked out the kitchen window to check on the chickens
around mid morning.
From the window, I couldn't see them in their yard,
so I went outside and peeked in their house.

They weren't in there! Where had they gone ??
I had a bit of panic and then thought to look up at the roosts.

There they were!
All of them up perching and looking a bit confused!

I wondered if they were going to be able to get down?

While I was thinking about it, Miss Loretta took off!

She landed safely and looked up at the other girls as if to say,
"Whatcha waiting on?" ;-)

Tammy was next.

Jenna Rae and Dolly talked it over.

Jenna Rae took flight.

And then came Dolly.

Little, timid, Emmy Lou, the last to go.

Whew! They learned something new on
the day they turned six weeks old. :-)

Can you tell that Tammy's waddle is forming?

Emmy Lou 6 weeks

Patsy 6 weeks

Loretta 6 weeks

Tammy 6 weeks

Dolly 6 weeks
