Ellie and her chicks have since been moved to a plastic pet crate
in the PA coop where Lydia raised her chicks.
They're not "exploring" the PA coop during the day, and once they're a
little older, perhaps when they're a week old, they can go out with the rest of the flock. Ellie's a good mother, just like she was last year when she raised two broods of chicks.
