The awkward teenage years!!!

The chickies are getting bigger every time we look at them.  They continue to lose their fluff and their feathers are growing in.  I might have fluff everywhere in my basement know, the perfect place to keep baby chickens until they're feather-y enough to live outside.

Who you looking at?

Henny Penny.  She's the biggest of the bunch.  Look at that long neck.  She's also the mellowest.  She does not mind me holding her.

Loretta. Look at her comb growing in.  Just an FYI, chickens recognize each other by the shape of their combs.

Dolly is growing such pretty feathers!  She's got naturally puffy cheeks.  It's a characteristic of Aracauna chickens.  You can really see her chubby cheeks in the photo 2 above this one.

Poor scruffy thing.  Lilly is half fluff and half feathers.  On the bright side, her feathers are coming in leopard print.  She's such a fashionista.

And finally the runt of the litter.  Starlight.  She is the tiniest of the bunch and the one with social anxiety.  She puts up the biggest fight when I am trying to grab her to go on an know, to see the great outdoors, her new coop, or to go back in the box.

Thanks for reading!
