Baby Chicks - First Day Out with Momma Hen

At a week old, the Momma hen got a chance to take the baby chicks on their first outing, and she headed them to section of the garden now covered in weeds and tall grass.

One of hens from last year, Sophia Red, came over to investigate.

They spent nearly the entire day out and about learning about foraging and free ranging from momma hen.  She did well, and brought all 8 chicks back to the chicken coop in the late afternoon.
