Growing Feathers

My, they grow up so quickly!

The Chicklets are growing like little fuzzy weeds, eating and peeping (and pooping) all around their jungle gym of a brooder.  They love the "bumper pads" made out of egg cartons, and they are intrigued by the roosting bars....although they mostly flap, squeal, and then fall off of them right now.  It's rather fun to watch them race around and have fun.  The chicks are of different ages--some nearly two weeks old, others only four days old--and the littler ones try so hard to keep up with their big sisters.  Anything the big girls check out, the little ones have to race over and copy what they are doing, even if they don't quite understand what exactly is going on.
The big girls have started growing the most lovely, creamy golden feathers and the cutest little sprouts of tails.  Aren't they pretty?
