Chick Growth Pictures: Hatch – 6 weeks

Many years ago, for the kids’ science, we took pictures of them holding the same chick each week as the chicks grew to see the growth that chicks do from birth to 6 weeks of age.  I posted the pics on my blog.  The kids were younger and my photography skills were not so great, but the posts have always been very popular on my blog.  Now Young Man loves photography and has agreed to help me do it again, but with even better photos.  I will update the posts each week with the next photos.

The changes are slowing down a lot now that they are older.  Plus the chicks are getting more and more unruly during photo time.  So I think I will try one more post at 8 weeks of age, at which point they should be fully feathered.  And then I would like to add one at about 16 weeks so you can see their final adult plumage and shape.  That one might not be in the same box though – LOL.
