Okay, so I know they had tails beforehand, but now "grown up feathers" are coming in. It looks kinda like their wings did with just a couple of "real feathers" here and there, but they're defiantly coming in... some more than others.
The chicks are officially a week old today (well yesterday/Sunday). Chicks are now running around the cage trying to fly. Saw Sputnik (the largest striped chick) fly about 4 inches higher than the top of the tub. We're using a baby gate on top until we can make a secure enough top that they can't get out of.
There was a bug flying around their tub tonight around the light. Chicks were all running around trying to get it, it was pretty cool. Hopefully its not too warm soon, want to put them in the yard for an hour or so to get some fresh air and do some big chicken stuff. LOL.
