April is almost over and Easter is here. Wow! Time sure does fly.
First they get wing feathers.
Then they get little tail feathers.
Then the shoulder feathers start coming in and the wings fill in in-between.
I put a branch in a couple of holes I poked in the side of the box and they practiced perching. At first they would jump from far away and they would miss or overshoot or be going so fast they wouldn't be able to balance. After a couple of days they figured they could just step up onto it. duh
They really are the cutest things!
Then it was time to clean the brooder box and get new chicks.
