C plus three - tails
Greater definition on wing feathers, and their tail feathers started appearing yesterday. Still fluffy but definitely sticking out.
That's the Dear Wife's hand in the brooder. We are handling/holding the chicks every day to check for pasty butt and get them used to human contact.
When you pick them up they peep like mad but when you put them back down they'll sit in your hand like nothing happened. Sometimes you have to give them a pretty good nudge to get them to hop down.
Elevated the feed/water about .75" as they are taller now.
