Baby Chicks, Week by Week

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 6:19 am

We’ve had the chicks just over a month and they’ve changed from cute little fluffballs to real chickens.  These are Rhode Island Reds, purchased at the Danvers Agway.

Here are some photos.

Getting a drink of water.  The stones are in the water dish so they don’t fall in and drown!

Standing on the window sill — look at those feathers!  The chick that is second to right was been late to feather out. We call that one Chick Pea.  Based on a couple of indicator, she “might” be a he!

  

Leo and I improvised a hanging feeder.  We’re trying to give them a little culture at the same time.

Out in the grass for the first time!

This is how we move them in and out — through the window.

Lidia with chicks.  She has chickens at home — she’s a pro!
