The Country Diary of a GenX Woman

First Freedom

20140531 034After 5 weeks in the big cage and at 11 weeks old, it is time for the young birds to spend some time outside.  I gently encouraged them out of the cage and under the watchful eye of bird dog Shorty they got stuck into the fresh grass.  I let them explore for an hour before herding them back in.   I got them in at the first attempt, unlike last year when it took over 30 minutes.  It is definitely easier with 4 than with 9.
