Chick update

They're getting bigger! The little one has been dubbed Mary by the neighborhood kids. You can see her on the far left. She is getting bigger, but is still significantly smaller and weaker than the others. I'm still holding my breath about her survival. The rest are starting to get some real feathers as opposed to the baby fluff.

They've been getting a little flighty and I am worried about what we'll do with them in a few weeks. In the meantime, J took some of the leftover chicken wire and made a top for their temporary home. Their permanent home is almost finished. I'll post pics when its done.

They are just too cute for words. Mary is so sweet and small. I hope she makes it okay. Perhaps once they are in their permanent home and have a little more room - she will get less "pecking" and have a chance to catch up to the others. Sweet little mite.
