    They have changed so much in the last week - they look like little dinosaurs!



    This one is sprouting the craziest feathers today!! It looks like shoulder armour! I'm projecting a roo -

    They are cute. I have taken photos of my girls every week because they do change sooo much. my friends are sick of seeing my "update" photos. I told them i'd stop at 6 weeks but i'm sure I won't. They turn 6 tomorrow. :) I never knew chickens would be so much fun and so amazing. I've always had dogs and cats, no farm animals so this is a new experience for me and I can't wait to get more of them.

    I've taken pics at every week milestone only because I wanted to document their growth and changes for myself. It's been fun to go back and look at the pics when they were 1-3 weeks old.
