It is very hard to believe that we already have 6-week-old chicks! Time flies when you are having fun.
We are now switching to a new plan for our chick update pictures since the pullets have decided they are going to be less-than-helpful with the process. The pictures will no longer be on the kids’ laps, but instead just loose in the coop. The one downfall is it is a bit harder to see the size difference without something in the picture to compare it to.
They are definitely starting to look like miniature hens at this point, though obviously not filled out the same. Only a few have any fuzz left, pretty much all of them are completely feathered out. We will start with our regular 4, and then I have some more pics to share.
In addition to the four we have been following since the day they arrived, I also took some pictures of the rest of the pullets since I was hanging out in the coop anyway. I thought I’d share them. We have quite interesting and individual markings in our 4 Easter Eggers.
As you can see below, they are filling up their new coop more and more as they grow and become more comfortable there. They are using the roosts a bunch as well. And they are still doing great on the chicken nipple waterers.
So there is the update from the pullet coop!
