The dogs are having fun watching the chicks. Each morning they run down the stairs to see what the chicks are up to and if they see them sleeping still they seem to know to stay quiet and not bother the box. If the chicks are up the dogs anxiously wait for me to take off the screen on the top of the box and then they stick their noses in to say good morning. They then watch as we check and clean out the water and food and place in a new thing for the chicks to explore for the day.
The chicks are getting a little more used to us picking them up and don’t squirm so much. They even had a neighbor come over and visit them today, while picking up eggs from us. The “ladies” enjoyed the sun today outside and spent more time out of the coop sunning. I think everyone in our house is anxious for Spring 🙂
