The babies are 3 weeks old now and are tired of being cooped up!
"Ma, I can't see! Move your wing!"
So Emmy took her babies outside for their first trip out of the trashcan and into the woods:
They didn't go too far from the coop at first:
But it's hard to herd 14 baby chicks, so she had to keep them moving:
They played on a tree stump:
One of the babeis got left behind - it's much easier to hop up than to jump down:
But Emmy went back for her - she's such a good momma! The babies ended their outing by having some cracked corn with Daddy:
Being that adorable sure is hard work!
