The first day out they spent all their time around the coop and pen. The second day they ventured a little further to peck around under the trampoline. Each day after, they ventured further and further away until by Friday, they were all over the yard especially enjoying sitting under a pine tree and roosting in its branches. They come running when I walk out the back door. It is so cute to see them zooming across the yard.
Every night at around 8:45 as dusk is setting in, they head back into the coop. They fight over who gets to sit on the top roost nearest the window for about 15 minutes then settle down. I haven't figured out why they fight because the same four end up on that top roost every night anyway.
Here are some pics of the girls.
