Baby Chicks ~ The 4th Week

As the baby chicks start their 4th week of life.......
These photos were taken on Monday, May 4th, exactly three weeks after being with us.
Being extremely busy last week, I didn't get a chance to post here they are...a week late....
The blonde Blue Andalusian...more feathers & less fuzz.  
Her feather coloring seems to be darkening a little.

Blue Andalusians, Dominiques, & Phoenix......Look at the feathers on the Phoenix

Golden Laced Wyandotte, Golden Campine & Egyptian Fayoumis

Wing feathers filling out & getting longer

The chicks are growing & eating more & more feed each day.  They look much more like little adult chickens than baby chicks.  They're outgrowing their brooder boxes as each day passes.  We're busy working on their coop daily, trying to get it finished enough to move them in.

A lot has changed since I took these photos just over a week ago.  I'll have another new update tomorrow with pictures taken yesterday.  Big news in the chick world!
