Chick update




Well it's been a week since the girls came home and they have grown quite a bit, getting their wing feathers in and longer legs. A couple have sprouted tail feathers. We put this nice stick in the box with them and they have been happy jumping on and off it, stretching out their wings and generally pushing each other off.
We are adjusting the temperature as they don't need it as warm as when they first arrived but it's not an accurate science, they seemed a little too warm this morning, but maybe that was my flash going off. Eventually they settled down to nap.
We officially named the 2 blond chicks. the lighter one, pictured on the stick above is Mei Mei and the other one with the redder head is Daisy. (Thank you Beeb). Still mulling over the others.
