Life with Cornish Chicks Day 17

So happy to say they are doing great. Although they are looking pretty ugly right now as they lose all their fluff and get in their big chicken feathers. They don't seem to be growing ridiculously fast or anything maybe my less then standard methods are helping them to develop more strongly. They are stay in they box in my kitchen closet at night then outside about 10 hours a day. Even though according to traditional keeping methods they should be being kept at 80 degrees right now they have been just fine at temperatures as low as 40 degrees. We do have an escape artist though :OP the biggest one can jump and "fly" just a big and manages to fit through the top line of the fence. They are actively seeking food which is awesome although still try to live in the food bin so I take it out most of the day and just sprinkle some about.
