Chick Update

Here are some picture I took a couple of weeks ago.  The chicks are about two weeks old, and just starting to grow in their wing feathers.  They are still bundles of fluff here - I'll have to get some pictures of how they look now - bigger and scruffy and awkwardly adolescent.

We put marbles in the waterer so they wouldn't drown.  Yes, we did see one tipsy chick stumble and fall head-first in the water.  They are top heavy, just like our human babies.

We built a itty-bitty roost so they can start learning how to stand on sticks.  Important chicken skill.

Eddie loves chicks.  That is the most interesting thing about this chicken thing so far.  All our boys love chicks.  Maybe that shouldn't surprise me.
