Chick Update

The chicks are growing so fast… they’re already breaking away from Mama!  They are so small they fit right through the barnyard fencing.

You can see oh the little owlet chick that the wing feathers are starting to grow out already.  The black chick seems to be a day or so behind, and this young, they are growing so fast that it’s obvious every day that the other three area ahead of it!

The chicks are world travelers these days, spending most of the day out with their mama in the barnyard.  They are incredibly brave when it comes to surviving feeding time under the feed bucket, too, although they know to run for safe ground during the first few crazy minutes.

It’s so fun watching these guys grow… and bonus that we know we don’t have to muck out the guest bathroom when they’re done!
