    I just received these fuzzy butts two weeks ago and they are growing up fast. Each is the size of my fist already. The cuteness factor is starting to wear off.

    Everyday they have a new sprout of feathers. Jane's tail feathers are getting very long.

    Mercedes has feathers coming in along her neck and chest.

    They are getting so tall that I'm going to need a larger box soon.

    Thanks for indulging my need to show off the kids.

    Quote:Wow! Yours look a little more developed than mine do. Look at those tail feathers. But at the rate they are growing it could be yours are 5 minutes older than mine.

    I recognize the RIRs what are the others?

    From adorable babyhood into awkward adolescence in just a few weeks! Mine are 3 months old now and have been back to pretty for some time, but never the cuteness of that first week. Thanks for sharing.

    rpchris,

    This bunch includes 2 Speckled Sussexs, 2 Australorps, 2 Plymouth Barred Rocks, 2 Americaunas, 2 Dk Brahmas, and 2 RIRs! My DH says they are my designer chicks! and yes they are growing fast, haha 5 minutes older, so true!

    My first chicks were 3 white and 3 brown from TSC, amazing how little I knew 1 1/2 yrs ago when I got them! Lost 2 to weasels this spring...so why not get 12 more! I have a new (used but free) 8x8 shed coming tomorrow that I am going to modify for the new girls and build a seperate run. love chicken math!

    Quote:I wish I had two of her. My daughter picked her out and she was the last brahma they had. My DB is top hen and a very sweet one at that. She dose not peck unnecessarily at the rest of the flock. I'm surprised how big and how often she lays. She lays 7 eggs a week so far.

    Your chicks are so very cute. I do miss the baby age. They were fun to have inside the house the first few weeks.
