Ugly Duckling

Well they're not ducklings but the title worked.  The chickies are getting older and uglier.  I'm hoping the weather will cooperate soon so that hubby and kiddos can build the coop they're supposed to reside in.  For the last two weeks it's either been raining or we haven't been home to work on it. 

They were so cute just a few weeks ago.

Now they're getting straggly looking.  New feathers are coming in.  They're growing their combs.  Phew.  Only a face a mother could love.  

(P.S....My kiddos wanted me to tell you they had just gotten up and hopped down stairs to visit the chickies...hence the bad hair. *smile*)
