    I continue to be astonished at the growth rate.
    They outgrew my brooder at two weeks and we moved them to the coop with their brooder lamp, but needed it only one night.

    Friendly birds, I can handle all of them even as a newbie. Healthy. I'm lucky! [​IMG]

    I agree, though I'm mostly relieved they're looking like big girls now. [​IMG]

    Golden Comets, right? Mine looked like that at 5 weeks.

    Be prepared - they keep growing!

    My bf and I joke about their boobies.

    Thanks for sharing your pics. I have 3 that are 1 week and 12 that are 2 days. Your pics are great and make me anxious to see my girls at a safe age.
