Moving terrified chickens

<---The Traveling Chicken Hut dad built. 
Molly looks hungry. 



It's amazing how fast our chickies grew! We got them, what? about a week and a half ago, and they're already too big the nesting box!
Dad and August have been working on a traveling chicken hut, and yesterday they finished all but the wheels that will go on later. The chickens wouldn't wait, though. Hoping up the sides of the nest box and some even tried to fly! It was really getting ridiculous! So dad said they'd better be moved before they drove him mad!(:D (the nesting box is in his studio;p)

After much flapping, peeping, screeching and scratching we finally got them outside.*Whew!*
They huddled in the corners for quite awhile, but then one got brave and started exploring and chicken being chickens, the rest followed suit.:)
A happy ending.(so far)








<---The chickens themselves.
