Chickees big day

Big day in chickee land.   I opened their small enclosure to the larger space of the coop floor and hooked them up with the big-bird feeder and waterer.  Initially I had some concern that they wouldn't "get" the waterer, so I've been filling a small, shallow dish for them several times a day.  After two weeks of super hot weather and filling and cleaning the water dish a million times a day, it got pretty old.

So, today was the day. I sat down in the coop to watch and ensure the chicks would use the new buckets.  Chickens are great imitators and all it takes is one curious chick before all are on board.  Here's a short video of their new digs.
