Happy (Two Week) Birthday birdies!

The new chickens turned two weeks old this morning.  It is truly amazing to see how many feathers they have gotten in just that short period of time.  Their little wings are filling in nicely.  As you can see in the video, they are testing them out, fanning each other and causing a raucous sometimes.  The other day we were sitting on the porch and Josh said, "What is all that noise in the workshop?"  He went to look and the birdies were going nuts because one little lady had flown the coop and was scampering around on the floor.  They apparently have a little separation anxiety!  So we may need to put the cover over the brooder soon to keep them from exploring the far corners of the workshop.
