Chicks Growing Feathers

Our ladies are starting to get their feather tips (as I call them) I guess it’s the start of the scapular feathers, which usually come in about 3 weeks of age. You can see them well on the girl in the front of all the ladies (I think she is the photo star of them all as she seemed to like her picture being taken and would stand still for me.) Chicks 6 days old

They are so cute and active. Mostly quiet as they chirp, but not too much unless we are messing with them. We try to handle them a few times a day so they get used to it and it makes it easier when they get older to catch them to check them over or get them if they are sick. Chick 6 days

Today the girls had another ‘photo shoot’ and were fairly good subjects… too bad my camera was acting up, but I still got some good shots…Chick d days oldChicks 6 days

Our second go around with chick raising is going well and it is a lot less nerve-racking this time as we know more of what we are doing. Today is my last day of vacation and as with all vacations it went by way too fast. I do feel like it was a good one though as we got a lot done and got some needed rest. Hope you have a blessed week 🙂
