Make sure the chicks get some food and water. They will also need to be kept warm. I wouldn't want Jade to lose them.

It will be good for Jade to watch them grow. In a week they should have wing feathers. Once they have all their feathers they will be bigger and able to go outside. My chick is doing well but still staying close to its mum.

They have now tiny feathers and are 5 days old i think i let them run around on the kitchen floor for a while and just watch them it,s amazing,

 

Wil pop over the farm this friday and cut some grass. and i need to get some hutches over this sataurday fingers crossed but need to sell bike to afford some wire as i like them sealed in as such and they can put them selfs away, also need to bring up about the rusting tractor/mower if it,s for sale ( theres 3 i have seen so far)and if i can get it for free for making them some wine soon i could do it up a bit and make a cool little mower/work horse we shall see. ps got jadees minimoto running today  just need to get a chain and for less that a £5 on e_bay im ok with that if i had the old chain i could have fixed it but it never turned up.
