    Ok, so this morning I was watching my chicks (about 1 week old now) and of course looking for any signs of things I should worry about. I've been lucky and haven't even had the pasty butt I've read so much about (touch wood). I spot a pink spot around the tail area on one and almost panic.... Please don't let me have a pecker already!

    So I pick her up and instantly see she if fine and a possible cause of this less furry area. What am I to do but run to DH who is in his throne room and put the area to be examined under his nose saying "Look at my chicks butt!" [​IMG]

    He still wasn't over joyed when I pointed out the new tail feathers! [​IMG] Go figure! I on the other hand am thrilled! Most of my little fur butts are turning into feather butts! [​IMG]

    Is it time to seek mental help? [​IMG]

    In case anyone else is as insane as I am, here is a picture:


    Tail feathers!!! [​IMG]

    That is too funny. I just noticed that one of my chicks is starting to get feathers on the shoulders yesterday and all my babies are getting a few tail feathers. [​IMG] My babies are growing up so quickly.
