1 Week old Chicks
Well, after writing my last post, I woke up the next morning and the little chick had passed away. :( I am guessing it must of had something wrong with it from birth. I did call Murray McMurray Hatchery on the phone, and the nice customer service lady, issued me a refund for the little one that passed on, plus the missing bird in the original order, and also for the vaccinations for the 2 birds. What a great company to work with! And, on a happier note, the rest of them are still doing well, and sprouting feathers so quickly! First the wings, now we have some tail feathers, and a couple of them are starting to gets some feathers on their backs. The friendliest of them all are the 3 White Giants (I am guessing that is what they are for now), the 3 of them have been named, Kiwi, Apple, & Blossom. Here is a pic of Kiwi, staring at my cell phone trying to figure out what on earth it is!

And another little cutie:

So as of today they are 1 week and 2 days old, it's so fun to watch them grow!
