Finding Their Wings

The girls are now one week old. They are really getting their wings and figuring out how to use them. We knew we had to get a taller box when we looked in the laundry room and saw a little head make a quick appearance at the top of the box!

So today after the daily cleaning, we taped up the sides of the box.  No more worry of escapees for a while!

The boys and I see them so much we really didn’t notice that they were also getting so big! Chris saw them yesterday for the first time in a day or two, and commented on how much they had grown.  He’s right! They have gotten bigger!!!

Being a week old brings other changes, too… Like cooler temps (now they only have to be at 85-90 degrees) and grit!
