They grow so fast!

I am amazed by the growth rate of these chicks. They sprouted little wings overnight, and I'm not exaggerating- they really did.

The chicks are very bonded to each other and I have to say, the way they sleep together is totally adorable. They like to squish themselves in between some towel and the waterer or feeder. I tried to get them while they were both sleeping but the sound of the camera inevitably wakes at least one chick up, everytime.

Like most babies, the chicks are completely lulled to sleep by the sound of the dryer. They, and the dryer, both live in the bathroom and it is really funny to watch them fall asleep standing up when I turn it on. "Dryer makes me sooooo... sleepy...."

Supposedly, it takes about four months from hatch to egg laying. That means that in June we can expect to get the first eggs, if all goes well.

Of course, that means that we will have beaten the 0.0001% chance that all five of our chicks were missexed and are actually roosters (this is the true chance- it is 10% to the 5th power for ye math dorks... right?).
