When I went to check my 3 week old RIRs this morning, I saw what appeared to be a fairly large spot of dried blood on one of the girls near her wing. Trying not to panic, I quickly gathered the emergency medical supplies and raced on back to the brooder, snatched her up and prepared to care for her. Foolish me! what I took to be dried blood was the beginning of a beautiful feather! She's gonna be a real looker, and I think I'll have some coffee before I look in on the chicks...lol!
