Here’s the group at six weeks. They have adjusted well to being out in the coop. They head in at dusk and then we close the flap. Matt built ramps and we enticed them to use them with dried meal worms. So they’ve been sleeping on the roosting frame, though in the back corner, rather than on the bar in the middle.
We used a second ramp to help them get up to the top of an old rabbit hutch that is in the run part. I put extra water up there this week with the hot weather. Here’s Thyme, taking the bait.
It doesn’t seem like they’ve changed much in appearance except Rosemary who is getting the rest of the dark feathers around her face and loosing the chipmunk look and Thyme’s head feathers have filled out to be more white.
