Little Chick

We have one little chick who is smaller and not growing her wings as fast as the other…Little Chick

And somehow she is my favorite… Little chick 2

I love her little chick face and that she is staying small. I am really focusing on their growing this time and just watching all the changes. It is such a fun thing to watch and a great thing to be responsible for. God knew what he was doing when he created baby chicks 🙂

Week by Week Growth of Baby Chicks

For those of you who have been following my chicks growth I thought I would share the past couple weeks in photos so you can see how they really grow fast.

To start here they are at about 3-4 days old…Chick week 1

Then here they are at about a week and a day…4 chicks week 1

And finally here they are today at two weeks and two days…4 chicks week 2

It is amazing how fast their wings are coming in… some faster than others. They are getting more active and trying to fly, scratch, and explore. They are getting new things to explore each day. Today they got some cut flowers to check out that I had on the table and it was time to change out. Now they had no slime or anything bad on them, they were mostly dried out and ready to be tossed. Instead the baby chicks got them in their box to check out. They really seemed to like pecking at the dried flower and stem. I am glad we raise chicks… it is a great way to get outside of your own head and focus on helping something grow. It is a nice feeling and I am glad we have the space and time to devote to good animal care. This includes thinking outside of the box and giving the girls something new and safe to explore each day 🙂 Happy Wednesday 🙂
