They Grow So Fast

If you think kids grow fast, get a couple of chicks!
Almost overnight, the chicks started sprouting feathers and combs, have put on substantial weight, do everything they can to escape their comfy enclosure and scratch at any dropped food like professional hens.
Evie's chick (and practically her best friend).
Claire's little one is almost certainly a rooster--his tail feathers are about three times longer and he loves picking a fight.  As long as he isn't overly mean with children, he can stick around.
I just love this little cochin hen's face.  Cuuuute!
We're furiously working on an enclosed yard and sturdy coop for the poultry.  They grow so fast, so we'd better hurry!
Claire's friend, the rooster.
