The fuzz-butts are a week old today. They are changing so quickly. Many of them have lost all of their wing fuzz for feathers and about half have their pea combs starting to emerge. I have heard over the years that you can tell the sex by the initial pea comb characteristics, which makes me a little nervous since I ordered sexed chicks and really don’t want to have to cull very many roos.
Here a few photos of the week old chicks. It is not easy to take pictures of little fluff balls, running like crazy and trying to hide from me, through chicken wire and with a red lamp glowing.
