Little Miss Itty Bitty

The chicks have been with us 4 weeks and 3 days!  It's so fun to see how they change, to watch the fuzzy down be replaced by those beautiful feathers.  We are being able to recongnize the Lace Wyndottes and the Giant Black Jerseys now that the white is disappearing from the Giants and the Wyndottes are getting the lacy white markings on their wings.

The chickens are enjoying the warmer weather we've had.  It's fun to see them running around and stretching out their wings.
