If you have been keeping up to date with our chick news, you’ll know that we were going to move the chicks into a bigger cage this weekend. They love the extra space and have been running around and starting to flap their wings. The chicks are getting better at jumping too; they can now jump over the side and escape when we open the door to feed them.
They’re growing quickly and are really hungry; we’ve been filling their food tray up several times a day. This also means that they poo a lot too! Mrs Long’s first job today is to clean them out and give them some fresh water.
They’ll be going back to the farm soon to join the other chicks and mother hens. We’ll let you know when they do and post a few final photographs of them before they go home.
