Oh my! At only 2 1/2 weeks these little guys are just plain growing faster than their feathers can keep up with! They seem to be none-the-worse for wear but they're not wearing much these days - LOL! Half naked little birds... as hot as it's been they're probably more comfortable this way, they certainly seem to be producing a lot of heat. I picked one up to get a better look and he was really warm so I guess I shouldn't worry about them getting a chill. I keep a fan in the barn to move the air around, they seem appropriately active, and they're definitely eating plenty.
Hope they get some feathers soon... it's just scandalous for them to run around looking like this!
