Life With Cornish Chicks Day 13

I can't believe I have had them nearly 2 weeks now. According to everything I have read they have reached 1/4 of their life now assuming they were 1 day old when I bought them. Kind of sad to think of it that way, however I am hopeful because their growth is much slower then I thought it would be. They are still getting feathers and happy as can be. :O) One is still dramatically smaller then the others but that may be the thing that keeps her alive. Yesterday my husband and kiddos spent half the day making me a cute little chicken coop. I still am bringing them inside at night but now they will spend the other 12 hours outside pecking about their pen looking for food. I am sprinkling food on the ground for them 3 times a day and the let them have a free for all for 30 minutes before bed :O) Here is a picture of my coop. I'm excited to see what the future holds for them.

Awesome, we've had chickens a few times. None right now though. Your coop is great.

Do you live in a rural or urban area, Melissa? I have always wanted to raise chickens, but they are not allowed in the city limits, sadly :(
