The Debut of the Chicks

Sage supervises the chicks’ Fresh Air Debut

After a month of living under a heat lamp in a cardboard box, the chicks (Lantern, Snuggly, and Snappifer) are making their debut in the world of fresh air.

They’re now spending several hours a day outside in their “chicken tractor” (basically, a mobile cage) so they can get acclimated to the Great Outdoors.

Their outdoor sojourns will be limited to the chicken tractor until they’re ready to run with the big chickens. In the meantime, they’re enjoying the world of sunshine, dandelions, and tasty insects.
