Our baby chick’s are officially out in the coop with the big girls. They have their own space in the coop and are protected from the big girls, but can see, hear, and somewhat interact with each other. Before the big move the coop was cleaned and the babies spent some more time outside. This was the closest the babies have been to the … Read More Growing and Changing Spaces
