Chick Growth Pictures: Hatch – 16 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.

This year we decided to re-make the series, following the chicks from hatch to 16 weeks of age.  Over time it became clear we chose 2 males and 1 female to photograph.  They are mixed breeds, since we cross-breed our chickens for hybrid vigor.  Enjoy!
