    Snapped a pic of the babies all snuggled in for the night...They are almost 5 weeks now and so scruffy looking it's actually cute. Thought I'd share:

    Isn't it funny how they stretch out to sleep?

    They are dyed.

    Lots of feed stores sell dyed chicks at Easter time. Once they're fully feathered, you would never know they started life so brightly colored.
    These are 3 White Leghorns and a Rhode Island Red.
