Chicken update

Here are some new pictures of my chickens! We took them for their first outside excursion on Sunday afternoon. It was gorgeous and they had lots of fun. It was hard to get them all facing the same direction for a picture :)
Here's Mimi at 5 1/2 weeks old and almost fully feathered. She really likes meal worms (I bought some at a pet store) and runs off with them before the other two can get them. She's almost ready to be moved to the coop, but we have to finish it first!
Here's Fifi at 4 1/2 weeks old, and she's turning into a very pretty bird. She's also a sweetheart who likes to climb on my hand sometimes.
And here's Phydeaux at 4 1/2 weeks old. That comb of his is just getting bigger and pinker, but I'm still holding out hope that he's a girl. Only time will tell.
They're pretty cute and growing up so fast! They sure are fun to watch, too. They pecked at lots of things in the grass.
