Last night was a milestone for the chicks.
The oldest, Nacho, was given access to a protected yard outside for the night! I'm not sure how much he was really out in the yard, but he could've gone out there at any time he wanted. He's all grown up!
On a side note, it's time for us to stop babying these chicks! We're leaving for Necedah in 2 weeks, this means that they have to be able to eat outside, forage for real (not just peck the ground beside us to imitate our actions), sleep outside in July weather, and start exhibiting crane behavior.
It's so exciting!
