Orpington chick growth – week 3

After two weeks of amazing growth, Chip’s still not done growing… She’s only two weeks old after all, and she’ll have a lot more growing to do! So without further ado, here’s her 3rd week of growth into a fullgrown Orpington chicken…

Sadly, I couldn’t make a pic on day 17.

On day 19 Chip’s tail was getting really fluffy! She was also feeling like modeling. I wish she’d help us make such a nice picture every day 🙂

As much as Chip liked to pose at the last few days, as grumpy she was today. Someone who was complying though, was Snowball – one of the white Orpies we got last week.

Now a week has passed since we got them, I’m convinced they’re a week younger than Chip and Nugget. When we got them, they looked like 6 day old Chip, and now they look like 13 day old Chip.

Which is all the more why I’m astonished by their growth… At the following picture – taken on day 21 – their size difference is easy to see 🙂 Imagine how much the 4 little snowballs have to grow in just one week…

    Leuk om te zien Lau, Chip’s groei van dag 1 tot nu!! In het begin schrijf je meestal ‘hij’. Nu ‘zij’, is het al bekend of het hij’s of zij’s zijn?

    Ongelooflijk zoveel veren er bijkomen per dag!

    Zijn de nieuwe kuikens al tam geworden?

      Ongelofelijk hoe snel ze groeien he? Ik sta er nog elke keer versteld van hoeveel ze stiekem groeien, per week.

      We weten het nog niet zeker, maar we denken dat Chip en hen is, en Nugget een haan. Voor de sneeuwballetjes weten we het nog niet zeker. Ze zijn al wel veel tammer geworden! Ze komen al naar onze handen toegesprint om te kijken of er toevallig eten in zit, maar worden niet graag opgepakt 🙂
