Chicks sure do grow fast!

A friend (Hi, Wende!) said they'd change quick, but I wasn't expecting to see changes from night to morning almost every day!  The girls and I have been having a lot of fun watching them change!

Here are a few pictures of them as they grew in May.

May 3Almost asleep in dd10's hand.  Wing feathers
starting to grow.

May 5A couple days later.

May 5We were fascinated with how fast the wings grew.

May 8A couple days later, and they were flying to the top of the waterer.

May 27How they look now, one month old.


  1. they are so sweet......what variety are they? I have long dreamed about having chickens......throwing grains to them, gathering the eggs.

    These chicks are Rhode Island Reds, which were purchased through mail order. The thought of just hatched chicks coming through the mail amaze me, but they arrived safe and we've not lost any yet.
