Moving the chicks

chicks July 16 (2)

The Rhode Island Red chicks that hatched on the May bank holiday were moved to the allotment recently where we kept them for a few days in a chick run where they could acclimatise to being outdoors. After a few days they were released from the run to integrate with the flock. They stay together as a group but otherwise have quickly learnt where the food is and are fitting in well.
