Eight Days

with 2 comments

Yesterday, our chicks reached the mighty age of eight days old. I recorded another video for Judy.

I’m afraid there is one chick who has not kept up the pace of growth with the rest of the brood and that may spell doom for her, in terms of longevity. Otherwise, the rest are exercising their little wings and sprinting about, eating and drinking with gusto, and appear to be having a rollicking good time with their present confines.

We are not counting the eggs that they will eventually produce yet, but we are feeling hopeful for their chances of growing to the next level.

Oh, they grow up so fast.
