    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    They will be four weeks old on Wednesday (the 27th). They are doing SO well and growing like little weeds! They aren't cute anymore, and they're not pretty yet - but I LOVE them!!!!

    Isn't it amazing how something so cute can turn into something so beautiful, but the process is just ugly??? [​IMG] I think we all still think they're somewhat cute especially our own.

    I actually like this stage. They are truly so ugly that they are cute...they remind me of tiny emu's.

    They are adorable! I'd love to get a barred rock. I have 3 RIR's and 2 Americanaus. What brand are your feeders and are they easy to fill and clean?
