    Awww but they grow out of it fast.
    IMO, every creature goes thru an ugly stage; human peeps included. Although in human peeps it usually starts in the teen years and stays that way until they move out of the house. [​IMG]

    Yep...mine are the same age and the same degree of...ummm...cuteness? My friend came over the other day and hadn't seen my chickies since the first week. She said... Wow they are huge! And those Silkies, well, they are not so cute... [​IMG] I said...aaaaawwwww, but they WILL BE...I promise!

    And can you believe...she took one look at my cutie pie Fiona (frizzle) and said "What's that scraggly thing???"

    Give them a couple of weeks... then you'll start to see what they are really going to look like.

    I have some 5 week old juvies that are getting better looking... 2 black stars and 2 EEs I'll have to post some pics.
