The video is hilarious! I cracked up when the "hand of god" randomly appeared and moved the chick back into frame. I can't believe they're already so much less fluffy. When will they move outside?
The chicks are currently in my basement, but I'll probably get them moved out to the coop in a month or so (as soon as they get some real feathers going). I'd like to take them outside for some fresh air, but we still have about a foot of snow on the ground.
Hi....just hopped over from my site to see your chicks. Ummmm, your picture above of a barred rock doesn't look like my barred rock. Even the first feathers that mine grew were barred. http://howmygardengrowshopefully.blogspot.com/2011/02/update-on-chicks.htmlCheck out the link to see my baby barred rocks.Can you post another pic your barred rock, I'm curious to see what yours looks like.
I looked at your photos again, and wow! Yours really did have barring right from the beginning. I think my barred rock started out black with a white belly. I only started to see black and white stripes in the last couple weeks (week 3 and 4).I'm hoping to take a new round of photos this weekend (as soon as my rechargeable batteries charge), so I'll try to make sure I put one up my barred rock.
Thanks I'll be on the lookout! I wish I could subscribe to your blog. Is there a reason why you don't have that feature?
Hi Katrina,I added a couple options for subscribing to my blog. I was assuming most people would just subscribe to my blog through their blog reader (just copy and paste the url into the "add blog" section of your blog reader). However, I realize now that not every uses a blog reader (for example, my parents who don't even have internet access at home). Thanks for the heads-up!
