Day 4

K, they are changing way too fast! This morning I went in and I saw the rooster flapping his wings and trying to herd them all to the other side of the brooder. Then a hen stretched up and bumped his chest. Is she challenging him? Also, their little wings are starting to be more pronounced. less baby chick fuzz on them. Here's a pic or two, so you can see what I mean.

They are quite cute! I'll post some updated pics tonight so you can see how HUGE Toby is now. ...and how big he is compared to his sister from the same hatching. It's crazy, I tell ya!!!! Happy chicking!

Oh yeah, that's a challenge. Wait till they start doing "oh yeah, well I'mm this tall!" "oh yeah, well I'm THIS tall" neck stretch challenges! ;) Watching chicks work out their pecking order is hilarious stuff!

Miss: checked out your pics. TK has gotten so big and it's amazing how much smaller Maddie is. Poor thing.

Farm Mom: It's hours of enjoyment that's for sure. I have to drag myself away to get anything else done. My DH said he was amazed they weren't in the living room. Too drafty, I said. LOL
