These three were born on Easter, so they are about three and a half months. Buttercup, the one next to the wall is lucky to still be growing. Friday night when I went out to close the hen house, she was missing and I could never find her. I thought something had got her. Saturday morning I go out to open the house and she's out strolling around. So last night I rush home to close them up and she is missing again. After looking everywhere for her, I found her in the tree. Luckily she wasn't very high. I had to get the ladder and get her. Of course she squawked like I was killing her. Evidently I scared her enough she didn't want back in the tree tonight.
These little chicks are three weeks old. I had a place on the ground fixed for them and their mom. Last night they were in one of the nest and mom was still on the ground. Tonight they are back in the nest and mom is up with the other hens.
Last week one of the moms for the one baby decided she was ready to give it up and went back to the hen house to sleep. This hen still takes care of the baby. It's five weeks old.
My four little girls (golden sex links) that are almost three months old are still not brave enough to go in the hen house at night.
