It was just a month ago that the meaties looked more like little Easter chicks.
Now they have grown into gawky looking chickens, with bare featherless undersides and underarms making them look a little more dinosaur than bird at times. From above they look pretty good.
The hens have grown too but not as much. Their feathers are coming in in a nice orderly fashion. A meat birds is checking out what is so interesting. When the meat birds get in the way of where a hen wants to go, the hen just walks underneath and carries on its way. This weekend Marty is building them their own coop.
"Grocery shopping" has taken on a new meaning.
In the fields all around us are new babies. We enjoyed sitting by the road for a while over the weekend, listening to all the "baaaaing."
One of my birds seems to be growing some black feathers. At first I thought someone had pooped on it. Nope, nice fluffy black feathers.
