These chicks have grown a lot since we first got them. They are actually starting to develop flight feathers. These are also known as adult feathers. This image is still when they were really young. Now they are almost a month old. The chicks are a little easier to bond with, then the ducks. These are the original breed that I had, black sex links. I lost the last black sex links that I had a few months ago, due to raccoons. By handling them from a young age, that allows for deeper bonds to be established. I took this photo to keep a memory of my chicks, of when they were still young, so I can remember that when they are adult hens. These are certified females. For my new ducks, 5 out of 6 of them are males (we think), which means we won't be getting too many eggs. I still like them, though, but ducks are not as easy to bond with as chicks! -Henry
I was inspired by my chickens and ducks to do "Ducky Comics." I have done a fundraiser for 4-H, and plan to continue doing so in the future. -Henry, 14
