    My chicks seem to have had a big growth spurt today while I was at work. They seem significantly larger and are sporting new feathers. They seemed to change little in the previous 3 days. Anybody else notice something like this or do your birds' growth and development seem be steady?

    My chicks are growing like crazy too! I got them when they were just under 2 weeks old; they are 4.5 weeks now and are so big already.... they still have a little fuzz in just a few places but for the most part they have their feathers! I've noticed their combs are starting to get very distinctive and they are testing their wings often.

    They've grown and so has their appetite!!
