Growing too fast

Baby really doesn't last long enough.

Here, one of the Cornish chicks, not even a week old, is starting to grow in real feathers.

Silver Maran, just now a week old has nearly full wings and tail feathers are starting.

We have to be careful holding them now, given a chance they will jump out of our hands and flap valiantly. Only to tumble, not yet able to fly, to the ground with an indignant squawk.
