Chicken update

I took pictures of each of the chicks last night.  They are getting so big!  Merci is looking and acting more like a chicken everyday.  She's even clucking sometimes.

Trixie and Cricket are the rulers of the coop.  I'm not sure which one is top chicken, because they seem to team up to gang up on Merci and Scooter all the time.  Today's trick is to fly across the brooder and land on the other chicken's back.


And finally Scooter...  She's kind of the tagalong.  So far she seems the most easy going and friendliest.  She doesn't put up a fuss when I pick her up like the others do, and she is quick to settle in for a cuddle.  She mostly hangs out with Merci, which is funny since Merci is so much bigger than her.  Her feathers look like they are growing in mostly white, with some gray and tan in spots.  I can't wait to see what she looks like when she gets bigger.
