Chicks - Day 4

The chicks are 4 days old - as of yesterday when I took these photos. 

I know everyone says they grow so fast - but geshhh. The grow so fast!
Look at their wing feathers already forming!

It is really for the better though. 
The sooner they get all their feathers, the sooner they can head to their coop and out of my spare bathroom!
I am not amused sharing 'my' bathroom with hubby now!

And then we have Ms. Blondie here...or as I am renaming her, Ms. SASSafras. 
Please turn out to be a Ms.!

I got my first Chicks three weeks ago and they are almost to big for the brooder now!
4 Brown Leg Horns and 2 Rhode Island Reds.
I was advised to try this old trick. Lay each Chick on its back in your hand, If the legs are held close to the body.....It's a Girl and if the legs are held straight out.....It's a Boy!
If this works, I have 1 Boy and 5 Girls!
Could I be so lucky?

Oh yes...they are so incredibly cute and grow so incredibly fast! And, well, I hope Ms. SASSafras turns out to be a Ms. as well...I think we have at least one Mr. in our bunch this year...stinkin'! ;-)
