Chicks: 3 weeks old

The chicks are three weeks old today! 

And yesterday was their first adventure outside.

They were quite the curious bunch!
No matter that the farm manager was lurking somewhere.

Boy are they ugly!
Yes. I am serious. 
When they go through this adolescence stage, they are u.g.l.y!

Here they are with my nephew and niece, checking out their 'almost ready' new digs. 
With any luck, it will be finished and the weather will cooperate for them to move OUT of my bathroom and into it next weekend!

Like I said, U.G.L.Y! :)

My mother in law always gets freaked out by chickens in their pre-teen stage...not baby cute...not fully grown.
