They can't really fly but they're well aware of their wings at this point. When we went up to see Todd's parents last weekend we had to bring them with us. That was an adventure.
We didn't even get 1/2 mile down the road before I realized I was going to have to hold them the entire way. The entire 6 hours. Their water was sloshing around and I knew they just felt really unsafe in their box so I wrapped some warmers up in a towel and held them. I don't know that we'll be taking any car trips with baby chicks again!
We let them play in the yard for a few minutes when it's warm out. Todd stands in one corner with one chick while I'm in the other- it's so cute to see them peep and try to find each other. They hate to be alone. They explore for a few minutes but usually end up right back on my lap which is pretty cute.
Louise is more of an explorer than Thelma is- she will sit on my knee and let me take her picture. Thelma will not- she's still my lap chick.
