Anyway, they aren't supposed to go outside until they are 3 weeks old. They'll reach that age on this coming Wednesday. I like to experiment (and I don't always have a lot of patience). So I thought I'd put a few of them outside today.
I built a chicken tractor last year and used it for the layers until I had a chance to build them a real coop. I plan on keeping the broilers in it until they reach maturity.

lawn, and did some stuff around the house. They were in the tractor all day. I guess they finally got used to it because this evening they had no issues with being in the grass. They didn't even mind the dog checking them out.
