Chicks One week old

It was time for them to move into larger accommodation and also have some bedding as they need to learn to scratch. So the plastic crate has been replaced with a proper brooder cage courtesy of Ebay.

Five minutes in the workshop and viola they also now have a 'practice' perch. To date only Boris has regularly hopped on top of the 'Electric Hen' so maybe the other two will take to the perch instead.

There is still a marked difference between the three birds especially in relation to feathering of the wings the youngest bird however does seem to be developing more slowly than the other two.

The also have Combs appearing although being Orpingtons the Combs will be quite small.
