My crafting and family life journal

I love this time of the year, the colors are starting to pop in the yard.

Chickens are 4 weeks old today and showing signs of the awkward teens. Most of their down is gone and not all the feathers have come in so they have bald spots here and there. They have also started testing their wings. When we open the cage for cleaning they run out and practice flying to different heights on the porch. At the end of this week we can turn off the heat lamp and in another three weeks they can move out to the hen house. I love the chicks but will b happy to get the porch back…
IMG_1880We finished building the hen house this past weekend. Next week it needs to be insulated for the New England winters and the run built. We should be done with that little building project right around the time they should be moving into to their home.
