Our chicks are 4 weeks old

Our chicks are now looking more and more like chickens, they are nearly fully feathered and the combs are starting to grow.

We have let them out into a bigger enclosure and they are flapping around, trying to fly or find holes in the grass to dust bath. I could spend hours watching them running around, what cute time wasters.

In a couple more weeks, they should be fully feathered and ready for the outside world. The other chickens have paid a lot of attention to the chicks growing up, I am hoping that there won’t be any problems.
