Going into Week 3, I can tell that the chicks have grown a lot!
Their average weight is now 2.96 oz., almost 2x last week’s measurement!
They have also grown in their first tail feathers and have grown in most of their wing feathers. We were astonished and amazed that they seem to grow a tail overnight!
They began to fly and are more brave to jump off higher objects. We had to tape the sides of the box to make it higher because one of them flew out!
They also trust us more. Some of them even follow me around the house.
So, we miss getting to hold them on our laps while we watch tv, but enjoy seeing them flutter around. The definitely have more energy!
