    I thought I was sold chicks that would never grow up, and stay small forever! Those little buggers started clucking today. My babies are growing up too fast, someone make it stop [​IMG]

    They do grow fast, don't they? [​IMG]
    Soon you'll be wanting them to hurry up so you get an egg.

    (just an aside, the term "jipped" is considered politically incorrect, - derived from gypsy)

    Good luck with those chickens!

    For some reason they grow up way too fast, but still take forever to lay an egg.

    I love the pic with the BR poking her head through the fence. Too cute. Yes, the chick days do fly by way too fast. Enjoy your hens!
