The chicks at 5 weeks....

Here's the chicks at 5 weeks and 2 days old.  They are starting to show their true colors...we're pretty sure we have 7 roosters, and 11 hens.  We'll be able to tell for sure in a couple more weeks, as the little guys are getting their red combs and waddles, and we can hear them crowing in the morning...more like "croaking" right now! It's hilarious!
I don't think they will get much bigger then twice what they are now - these are bantums, so they will be nice and small.
Still keeping them in the cage at night, but we should have their new home finished enough for them to stay in by this weekend.  Hopefully (fingers crossed!)
