Although the chicks are still [my] babies, they have reached the “tween” stage. I can’t believe how fast they grow! I swear a fairy sprinkles growth hormones on them at night because I see something new every day. First it started with seeing ears develop, then they sprouted fuzzy tails, then the red frizzles’ feathers began to curl….then the chicks started to establish the pecking order, to fly (I’m not joking – I’m afraid they are going to literally “fly the coop” one of these days!), and gosh darn it, they are just_getting_big!

At week 1, I weighed Kung Fu Panda, the grey japanese, and Bruce, the white silkie. KFP was 20 grams, and Bruce was 33. KFP was the shrimp and Bruce was a monster! Today is week 3, and KFP weighs an admirable 66 grams and Bruce weighs 135!!!
