Ruby and the Rubys at 21 Days

I say this on every update on the chicks, but they’re growing and they’re now around the size of a blackbird! Their feathers are changing to the thicker, darker Welsummer coat and they’re starting to show behaviours more, such as preening and dustbathing in the litter in their run. We want these hens to be as tame as the ex-commercial hens we have and one way to help with this is to pick them up and handle them as often as we can, which we’re doing.
