Black Australorps at 3 Weeks

Baby chicks grow up so fast! Here they are at 3 weeks old. Starting to get personalities! There is the tiny one that cries a lot and you have to keep cleaning poop off her butt because she doesn’t move as well as the others. Believe me it’s a real thing! Called Pasty Butt. It can actually be deadly! She worried me but it finally getting bigger and healthier.

Then there is the bold one. The one that makes you wonder if she is a Rooster. Well, hard to say, but I’d prefer her to be a Rooster rather then that wild of a hen! She will be a handful! If it’s a Rooster he will have his talons full keeping the girls in line so won’t be as big a problem to me.

Ohhhhh they grow so fast!
