The Poultry go outside

We have had our adult tom turkey and 3 laying hens out in a portable fenced area for a while, but we finally let the baby poultry out this weekend, June 13. They were in their own "chicken chalet" for a while first within the fenced area. When we let them out, there was very little drama getting used to the adults. My red hen decided to peck a few chicks and chase them out of the chalet, but otherwise it was uneventful. They spend most of the first day inside, but then ventured out during the day and back in at night.

Our turkey hen, Pearl, was in with the chicks. She likes to be their mother, whether they are hers or not.
