But They're Pretty On The Inside

It's evident from the two pictures that Ginger is growing and is the ugly chickling phase of poultryhood. These pictures show her growth over the last week.

Yesterday, I had the chicklets out for nearly two hours so they can do what they enjoy: practice becoming chickens. They make complete fools of themselves running around in big circles with their wings-a-flappin', but hey, if it feels good, do it! They occupy themselves by peckin' and scratchin' and spreading their wings out in the heat of the sun. Ella, much to my surprise, was the first to take to dust bathing. I didn't expect the littliest of the three to be the first one to do something so instinctual.

In this picture (taken last week), she appears to be ready for chick-sized coins to be placed on her eyes and to be planted in the ground. But no, it was her dusting while Xena looked on.

I'm so jealous! They're not ugly chicklings! They're beautiful! (don't ever let her tell you you're ugly, ginger!)
