    I was watching chix play yesterday and noticed one had rattie looking wing. was very worried and watched them through out the day and realized they ALL had rattie looking wings. I realize I am not a brain surgeon but it finally hit me they were GROWING wings and they were not fully formed yet thus the wings are rattie looking. also had poop bottoms for first 2 days and just kept at cleaning them and they all look fluffy and playful now. will move to larger cage today. camera is malfunctioning so can't give pics but I CAN boast![​IMG]

    congratulations. my youngest chicks are now 5 weeks old and my two golden cuckoo marans are in the extreme ugly chickie stage... can't wait till they feather out! The leghorn roos and the W/BW Ameraucanas as well as the SS roo are looking GOOD at 5 weeks... like little mini chickens!
