New chick run
At the start of May we put the chicks into a new henhouse that had a small, enclosed run. This was the first step towards incorporating the chicks into our flock of hens. Today we built a temporary fence around the chicks' henhouse to create a larger run and give them experience of being properly outdoors. They took readily to their new space. In a couple fo weeks, we will remove the fencing and allow them to mix with the other hens.
