The chickies are big enough to go outside, they love the grass. We rigged up a cage for them and the mother chicken. It amazing how fast they grow, their wings are big enough so they can fly up to the mothers back. Its so cute how they ride around on her. We had two more hatch (not like we don't have enough already), there is Penelope and Savanna. This adds to the count of 8 chicks, 8 hens, and a rooster.
