the chicks- one two three

one day old:

two weeks old:

three weeks old:


I'm afraid they've hit the ugly duckling stage. They're a mess of baby fluff and over size wings and adult feathers and shrunken looking heads as their combs haven't come in yet and they're all mottled half their chick colour and half their adult colour and they spend a lot of time trying out their wings with dodgy take off, steering and landing skills but we love them anyway!

I love the gangly teenage bird stage!! So much fun. Ours go through a dinosaur-like phase during which I am not sure you could tell they were chickens without a good bit of experience.
