larger quarters

Tiny tailfeathers:
And a tiny proto-comb:
We've been dealing with some pasty butt (I've linked to a page explaining it, but if you're sensitive, you may want to skip it) in a couple of the chicks. Last night I sat down and performed the unglamorous job of unplugging the Rhode Island Red; another chick will get a simple cleaning today. Her health is not at stake, whereas I was becoming concerned about the Red.

Over the weekend we scrounged some cardboard cartons from a local business and set up a larger environment for them. This looks crazy, but it should keep them from perching or flying over the edge once they're teens.
This morning, we moved them in.
And now they really have room to grow.


  1. Pasty butt. Kind of self-explanatory, but I clicked anyway ... and quickly hit "back." :)

    Can't wait to see the chicks though!
