Summer is whizzing by and our new chicks have grown up fast! We are lucky to have a separate spot in the hen-house for baby chicks.
Chicken wire separates the two areas so the big birds and little birds can slowly get to know each other. When they grow big enough to venture into the territory of the Big Bossy Hens we put a “small chick” sized door in the chicken wire. The little hens can come out into the main coop but they can also run back into the nursery and hide from the squawking hens.
Watching them figure it out can be quite comical, but that’s life, the young girls and the old girls just gotta learn to work it out!
Maybe one of those big hens will take the little chicks under her wing!
