Mama Hen took the chicks out of the coop for the first time yesterday afternoon.
Of course, on their first outing, they had to have a snack.
Can't you just hear it?
"Mommy, do I have to eat it all?"
"No, sweetie, some is for your brother and sister. Just eat some. Hurry up, now, and I'll show you the water fountain"
Today she's instructing them in the "scratch and peck" method of bug hunting!
