Look, Ma! New Wings!

Little chicks grow and change fast.  We got them last Wednesday, March 7.  Here are some pictures taken  just two days later...

Wing tips have the first bits of fluff to get replaced by real feathers.

The black chicks are growing just as much, but the changes are harder to see.

We continue to handle the chicks--as we learned we should--so they grow to be more relaxed around us.

I don't know why, but watching chicks drink is about the cutest thing ever.

You think these wings are looking snazzy now?  Just wait!

We actually have some new photos from tonight (day 6), but those will have to wait until tomorrow's post.

Stay tuned for more of these rapidly changing gals!
