They Grow Up So Fast
We've had our chicks for about a week and a half now. So they're probably 13-15 days old. They are not so cute anymore! They are losing their fuzz and growing awkward feathers. Their feet are huge.
They are, however, still very entertaining to watch.
We actually had them in a small wooden box in our garage at first.
Then after about a week, we moved them into the (basically) completed chicken coop.
It was so nice in there before we moved them in, I wanted to just hang out in there. I wish I had smellovision to share with you how marvelous it smelled! New wood and fresh hay and grass.
The chicks love it in there.
There's so much room for them to run around - and they literally do, wings flapping. They also sometimes run AT each other, chests out, and jump at each other with their claws! Then they stand there eye to eye until one ducks down and walks away. It's amazing to me that they are already that aggressive. Clearly they're establishing the pecking order.
