The chicks, Gertrude and Olive, are now old enough to go outside for a while and experience the wonders of the world. We also wanted to introduce them to their new chicken family. So we borrowed a cage from a friend and took them on an outing into the garden. At first, the chickens were fascinated but after five minutes, they wondered off to other chicken business and left the chicks to it. We were also giving the chicks their first taste of greens, so they were busy exploring that culinary world and didn't seem too concerned about the feathery giants on the other side of the fence.
