the chicken rancher lady i got our girls from said it could take a year for our girls to be 'fully grown', but my gosh in just a handful of weeks they went from puff balls to young women! just a few short weeks ago! out having a scratch this week my son says they look like 'midget chickens'. i guess that means they look just like 'regular' chickens with all the chicken features and proportions, but 1/4 scale size?!? ive got to up my time line on getting the coop finished or they'll have to move into the house with us until i do!
