    Well, Lola and Pinoccio are at 3 weeks now.. and starting to look a little rough. But they are growing so fast. And our babies are getting bigger everyday! Bob is really starting to get some good wing feathers going, and a bit of a tail too.. maybe Bob is a girl afterall! Well, here's Lola and Pino, looking scruffy...

    Ohhh, a quick update.. last night we tried watermelon for the first time..
    At first, none of the chickies would venture even close to the plate.. so I added a little bit of crumbles to the top of the melon.. well, as that got mushy, here came the biddies!! While scarfing down the mush, one of the gilrs got a taste of melon.. and it was ON!! I have never laughed so hard, Bambi was being chased by Lola, and finally got her little piece down. Then, Lola got a hunk, and had to run from Bambi, ened up having to crouch in the corner of the brooder box to eat her melon in "peace" Pinoccio paid no attention, just stood at the plate woofing down as much as could fit in a beak. Then I got totally tickled at the whole lot of them "wipeing their mouths" on the shavings after they were done.
    And wouldn't you know it, my camera battery was dead!!!

    I will be sure to have my camera charged and ready next time we try a new treat!! They moved into a larger brooder box this morning.. things were getting a bit cramped, and I was having to change the shavings twice a day. Now they have room to spread their wings and flap a little!!

    I have 2 banty cochins.. one blue (Lola) and the other I think is going to be a white (Coconut).. right now she is kind of a dusty yellow color. I have one banty RIR (Pinoccio) and two mystery chicks.. a little black one named Bob, and a pretty bantam with the brown stripe down her back is Bambi. Bambi think's she's one of the big girls. She likes to run with Lola and Pinoccio (3 1/2 weeks) instead of her fellow biddy babies (1 1/2 weeks)
