The kids were very quick to name the new chicks last week. It’s hard to believe that they are now one week old! Their wing feathers are starting to grow in and they just learned the art of scratching in the pine shavings. Between napping and preening, they are getting the hang of this chicken thing! On day four, Cuddles was walking sideways whenever she became excited. I added some electrolytes and vitamins to the water, unsure if it was due to a vitamin deficiency. That is not uncommon with baby chicks. Today, she seems to be just perfect. Growing, eating, thriving and no more sideways walking. Thank goodness. I was fortunate that the kids left me one chick to name. I named her during last week’s photo shoot. I thought Storey was just perfect!
