... but then they got BIG! Now they run and fly and poop everywhere if you let them out!
So for the past week I would keep them in their cage while I quickly took the bedding out and changed their food and water. I just worked around them and it was going well. Until tonight I walked away to rinse out their water dish and returned to see Betty.... flying the coop!

So it seemed my girls had grown too big and too smart for the "quick change." I looked around until I found the next best "holding pen"
|The trash basket worked perfect!|
|I was worried they wouldn't fit, but I then remembered factory farming. I thought they would be more thankful for their plush lifestyle after the basket experiment.|
My babies are getting SO big! Sometimes I get sad realizing we will most likely have moved before they ever lay their first egg. But I know they will be in good hands at the farm market.

I also found a few pictures from a couple weeks ago. They are MUCH bigger now but the pictures turned out so cute. A look back.....
