What a Difference a Day Makes

Ok, more like three days ...

Here are the latest chick pics. The wings are already starting to feather and I can see changes almost by the hour.

Look at the chick at the top/middle of the bunch - see her wing as she stretches?

I thought I could tuck the chicks in this little basket for a cute photo op, but they had other ideas and jumped out faster than I could put them in. I finally just set the basket down and let them climb on it.

Still not sure of the breed, but I found out that my local Tractor Supply Company got them from Mt Healthy Hatchery here in Ohio.

They've already graduated to a large plastic tub (still inside the dog crate) and I'm working on a brooder box for when they're feathered enough to go outside.

Ok, I am pretty sure you have Red Sex Links. I will be posting some photos of ours sometime this week and they look exactly the same. I will let you know when I post the pics and you can pop over to look at the photos.

Have Fun!

I love the baby chicks. I have an order in for six golden sex links to arrive on April 28th.
