Chick Growth Pictures: Hatch – 3 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.

This week seemed to include a big growth spurt, along with some major feather changes.  They are starting to look a bit awkward – with their fluff and feather mix.

Chick Growth Pictures: 24 Hours Old

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.  We hatched out this week, so here we go!  I will update the posts each week with the next photos.

These chicks are right around 24 hours old:

We are taking the photos from farther away because we want to be able to really see the size difference well as we go along.  But I couldn’t resist some close ups too, because, well, chicks are so darn cute!
