    My 1.5 week-ers are flying already!!! I didn't realize it would be so soon. The little OEGBs are getting rather curious and so far are the only ones that have flown to the top of the brooder. They are SO tiny still but their wings are fully feathered. I swear that they're about the size of a mouse... those are going to be some SMALL eggs, lol! The other ones are flying up to the lowest roost and my largest EE is flying up to the top roost and eyeing the edge. Needless to say the cover went on this morning! [​IMG]

    Haha! Mine are about three days old, and THEY are trying to fly, too!

    They do grow up fast, don't they!?
