Raising Baby Chicks: 2 Weeks Old (Part 1)

These were taken when the chicks -- okay, pullets (hopefully, and not cockerels) -- were two weeks old, plus one day.  It was March 6, 2014.  They'd been with us for exactly two weeks. 

Here's a Cinnamon Queen.  Looking a little scraggly as new feathers come in. :)

Trying to get a picture of the Barred Rock.  Photobomb level:  Cinnamon Queen.

Again.  Photobomb level:  Wyandotte.

Okay, fine.  I'll take you all together.  The Rock seems pleased.

They kept hovering right at the edges and acting like they wanted to get down.

Wyandotte and Barred Rock.

Sometimes they look sort of like dinosaurs.

"Two Circles" the Wyandotte at two weeks old.  A little awkward maybe, but pretty just the same.

They like to stand on the edge of something and stretch.  See how Two Circles seems to be looking at the Cinnamon Queen's foot?  Just after I took this, she pecked it, ha.

I was tried a few times to get a shot of one stretching out both wings, but this was the best I could get.

Wyandotte closeup.  The Rock was obstinate and wouldn't give me a good shot.  And then my camera batteries exhausted (can't imagine why).  Fine, then.
