If you give an EO a pop door...

They definitely aren't going to stay in the brooder...

And once they're out of the brooder, they aren't going to be still...
No, they will run around like crazy!

And when they find the loose dirt under the porch, it will be bottoms up!

Another beautiful day here in Louisa.

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

OMG they are sooooo cute. It must be nice to have all that lovely warm weather still. It's nice here today but we know that Old Man Winter is just around the corner. Worst luck I hate winter. Cabin Fever for three months with nothing to do but look at Travel Magazines, Seed Cataloques and Performance Poultry's Cataloque. Oh blah :sad:

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

Amazing pictures! EOs are some of the bravest chicks I know! So breeds you would need to have that door open a couple days before anyone would venture through.

And I can't believe your weather! It is glorious here in my opinion with temperatures around the freezing mark. A few inches of snow on the ground and it will be her until April, maybe even May. Two weeks of winter down and about 5 months to go.

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

Oh Glen absolutely beautiful pictures, those babies look so happy to be scratching about.  They are so fun to watch.   Well it was 58 yesterday and 54 today, so very mild for this time of year and no snow.  It's amazing that 9 hours south of me and your are that warm.
I agree with Susan keep the pictures coming :thumbs:

That doesn't sound so bad! :whistle: 

What lovely pics.  They are adventurous aren't they!?  And cute!  I am not sure how young your black chooks were when you got them, but the EO chicks interaction with you and their environment, is way less with other breeds.  Many breeds run away from you rather than towards you and at best ignore you.  When you have other breeds of chick in with these, they tend to get more laid back and freindly than they would be alone.  When you handle the chicks, notice the others watching to see if it is safe, or if it their turn.  It's kind of neat when you get attuned to it.

Our EOs go out in the rain and wind when everyone else is hunkered down.  It was mild today so I took out half a loaf of bread, lured the more hens out that were hanging about in the coop (EOs were already outside), then I laid chunks of bread by in pop doorway and nabbed the fatties (read Penedesencas and Chanteclers) that don't want to go down the ladder out of the coop.... what a mean momma!  But they got to exercise and dustbath in the sunshine and they seemed to like it (and the bread).  :chook:

PG you live too far north for sure!! :banginghead:

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

Nice pictures of some beauties. You should be submitting them to a chicken magazine, they are so well done and of course the chickies are so cute. They look quite enthralled with their new adventure. It will be awhile before mine see such nice weather here.

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

Glen,

Truly, please keep the pics coming! We love to see the birds, but we also really love to see a place that isn't buttoned up for winter!


When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

Man what great pictures. We are blessed with nice days up until the middle of December. We only get about Two and a half months of really cold weather here. Which wouldn't be cold to y'all up in Canada. I bet y'all would be out in bathing suits here,lol.

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

Beautiful little fuzzy butts.  I am officially jealous of both the chicks and your weather.  We don't have any snow here yet but still, I'm anxious for spring to arrive.  Spring brings new chicks and poults, sunny days and the arrival of warmer weather.

It sure does! I put zipties on the last 5 hatchlings to see if there was any noticable growth difference between them and the early (21day) hatchers. I wasn't sure how long the marker would last on the fluff. My oldest daughter and I just finished putting new zipties on - their shanks are growing so fast! Heck the all of them are growing like weeds! Their food intake really has ramped up the past three days.

Re: If you give an EO a pop door...

My, they have grown from this haven't they?  Seems, just a blink of an eye since mine were that size.  I have videos I have to upload from the summer!  :duh:

You'll love these Natursepace, you'll notice they are different right from the start!  :EO:
