    Chicks are 8 days old today, and I can't believe how quickly they are growing. Here come the wing feathers, and I think I see some tails sprouting as well!!

    They won't be able to fit on one hand for long!

    All of them are named, some from my 4 year old, some from me.

    Does the last one (Spaghetti) look like a light Brahma to you? Got them from Mypetchicken, but she seems really dark for a light brahma.

    Adorable chicks! They do grow really fast, faster than you would think. In my opinion, Spaghetti is probably a Light-Brahma, but you won't know for sure until she gets older.

    I hope so! I really wanted a light brahma, but when I saw her, I was surprised at how dark gray she was!

    Beautiful photography too! What size lens did you use? I once tried to get chicks to stay in a basket but OmGosh it was hysterical!

    Thank you! I use a canon mark ii 5D, these were shot with a 60mm macro lens. [​IMG]

    The chicks caught on pretty quickly as to how to get out of the basket, so I had to make my shots quick!
