Chick Pics

We have 14 chicks left and they are doing great.  Travis loves having them and is very dedicated to their care.  If I call him and he doesn't answer I know it is because he is down in the basement checking on them, feeding them, checking their temperature or changing their water.   

So far we have found the chicks love meal worms, wheat germ, and chopped vegetables, but are not fond of strawberries.  

It is amazing how quickly the chicks change from day to day.  They are getting fuller, taller, and their fuzz or down is being replaced by feathers.  It is interesting to see their feathers coming in and what kind of markings they have.   Awww, such pretty girls!
