Gangly chicks

I can’t believe they’ve grown this much! Where did the time go? That cute, fluffy stage is winding down fast.  At three weeks old the chicks are looking pretty gangly. This early adolescent age is cute in it’s own way. It’s fun to see the feathers coming and get a sense of how they’ll look as adults.

Their still in their brooder with towels and a light to stay warm. It’s kind of chilly in our playroom.

Michael took the cardboard box out to give them more space and added a log.

We’ll put a nice perch in soon too.

The other buff orpington; we need more than one to maintain good balance and we’ll have three when these two chicks grow up

Here’s our little cuckoo maran. I’ve been trying to give her extra socialization training because this breed is known to be pretty unfriendly. Doesn’t she look thrilled to see me?

Best friends for life!

That’s how we raise them here~

Enjoy everything!
