Our brooder is finally empty!



I finally have an empty brooder--all the babies are big enough to live outside. Yesterday I moved the chicks that were hatched at the Columbus Jewish Day School out to a small outside pen. Today I'll open the door and let them run a bit and get introduced to the older babies. Once they are accepted by the older flock and I'm sure that they won't get picked on too badly, I'll take away the little chick house and they can run with the big girls.
