teenage chicks5

The chicks are growing up. Who knew it would happen so fast? Obviously I wasn’t expecting them to change so much each week but there you have it. They’ve entered their awkward teenage years where they aren’t quite as cute as they used to be and have started to grow their feathers and lose their fuzz. At least for them it won’t last very long – in fact I took these pictures before we went to Seattle + Portland and as I expected we came home to completely different birds. I think they are now in their 20’s and are looking more and more like the hens they are suppose to (time to take a few more pictures).

They’ve started flying around a bit, getting used to people and are packing their bags to make the big move to full time outside living. Here are the pre-trip pictures of the girls which we have also named! Above + below is Lola… I think she’s the nicest

and last but not least Flossie (she’s a firecracker!) Still walking around like she did as a chick – and running too! She was the one bird that tried to run away from us when we took these pictures. We’ll have to watch out for her. teenage chicks7

Now that you’ve seen their teenage years I think you need to head back to the baby chick post and see how cute they were then. I’ve heard a few people would be interested in prints of the baby chicks and if so head over to my proofing site where I’ve posted them in a gallery. Also, I’m going to be giving a print away on facebook so head over there for details to enter!
