Backyard pecking

The girls are six weeks old now, and they look like real chickens! They got to explore the backyard this afternoon, pecking and eating rocks and dirt. I fed them a few fronds from the old fennel plants that Dan planted during the hovel days.

Hopefully there will be eggs in five months!
