A Bird in the Hand and a Hero Hound

Can you believe how much these chicks have grown in 2 1/2 weeks?! We just had to get a close up but in doing so this little guy escaped - not just under the brooder but into the wooded back lot! Pawprint to the rescue! Now granted, when we first let the dog out we weren't real sure that she wouldn't eat the bird when she found it, and after a little while we weren't even sure she knew how to find it - but she did - and then we lost it again - and then she found it again. The little quail is now safe inside the brooder box and this will be one of the last close up photos that we take of them for a while!!
