It is hard to believe that just two weeks ago, we were first introduced to the newest residents of Double S Farms.
Newest residents, Two Days Old
Two weeks is actually a lot of time to a small chick. Look at how quickly they have grown….
From left to right, meet Flo, Ramona, Effie and Lucy.
They made their first foray into the great outdoors for two hours. I don’t know who was more excited…the chicks or my sister, Chicken Farmer.
Their feathers are rapidly forming, especially on their wings. They still spend the majority of their time indoors as they are too young to be outside other then a couple of hours.
They are already trying to fly and one has even managed to escape the brooder and so now the lid will now stay closed.
Doesn’t that remind you of how exciting it is to see a little toddler take their first steps….until they start getting into things due to their new mobility. I can definitely see similarities with raising chicks.
Before we leave, please take one last look as the chicks are proudly showing off their newly grown tail feathers for the camera.
Don’t worry…this is not the last we will see of Flo, Lucy, Effie and Ramona. We will visit again soon…
