    Unfortunately, chickens often stay ugly for WEEKS! [​IMG] But I am REALLY curious to see what your babies look like as they older. Keep us posted!!!

    Yeah, their ugly phase is cute..neat to watch all the feathers come in, and change before your eyes!

    I'll def. keep posting every few weeks, I'm curious too! I know one is a def. roo..so can't wait for him to mature:)

    Quote:Will do! Yes, their feet are too much [​IMG] They have dads huge feet, and moms feathered toes. Their dad has feathers on his feet too though. So maybe they'll be extra fuzzy on the toes.

    It varies. Whenever they get all their 'big kid' feathers in. The scruffy look is caused by all the new feathers
    growing in. Yea, enjoy them while they're like this. They won't be innocent and cuddly for long [​IMG]
