Look What I Can Do, Mom!

Standard

Boy, oh, boy, they weren’t kidding when they said that baby chicks grow fast! I’ve had my brood exactly a week today and I can’t get over how much they’ve grown.  Their wings have developed so quickly and they act more like birds trying to fly around the brooder.  Some of them do very well getting off the ground, lol!  Today we decided to place a wooden dowel in with them to see what they’d do with it and to my surprise they got the hang of perching on top of it withing a short amount of time.  In fact they are so proud of themselves and what they can do one or two of them will fly up on there whenever I come nearby as if to say, “look what I can do, Mom!”  Of course I squeal with delight and tell them how proud I am and what very smart little ladies I have. 🙂

I think I’m truly chicken smitten  xoxo
