2 weeks old

We are going to lose all vestiges of "chickness" very soon. They're two weeks old and already starting to look a little ungainly.

Scraggly tails, big feet, mixed patches of feathers and fuzz. They're still adorable, though, and their personalities are already quite evident. The splotchy little Wyandotte on the lower right is often the first to come jump on my open hand when I take some feed in. She also chases the others away from me, which may be a play for queen of the roost or may turn out to be the first sign that she was, in fact, a rooster. Time will tell.

If you're a parent who has experienced the feeling of your children growing up astoundingly fast, think about the poor hen who sees this change in a mere two weeks:

  1. Ahh, but Mama Hen still sees her balls of fluff in gawky, partially feathered critters. And I'll bet they still need their naps. :)
