Our Buff Orpington chicks are now just 2 weeks old, and look at how big they are getting! They are noticeably bigger every day and their feathers grow quite a bit longer.
Not only are they fun to watch grow, their behaviors and personalities are remarkably entertaining. Yesterday, they spend a lot of time digging to the bottom of their dirt bin. We have worms living in their for them to eat. But, most of the bigger worms stay near the bottom. They figured that out yesterday and went to town digging, throwing dirt and eating worms!
Each day they get a little more engaged in different activities and we are having a lot of fun watching them grow up. Two sisters will be arriving this week. They will be newly hatched and a different breed. We suspect these girls will get busy teaching the new ones all the things they have already learned about worms, grit and treats.
