I am shocked at the speed our chicks are growing. We have had them for a week and a day. And they are feathering their wings, and last night, as I was cleaning out the pine, I n oticed that some of them are getting tail feathers!!! I have a feeling that we may need to move them out of their brooder sooner than later. They are starting to try to escape everytime I open the lid. lol. But all in all, they sure are a delgiht. More fun than I thought they would be, and I had already thought they would be fun!
