Big Chicks

Today was a day of spraying and hand pulling verbesina. It hasn't rained here in weeks so at least the weeds are growing slowly and we are keeping up with them.
The chicks are starting to get their adult feathers now. Many of them are as big as the adults now (at least by weight). It's getting difficult to drive around in carts because they are sitting in the roads. I'll give you a picture of them in the road in a few weeks when they are really clogging things up.
This chick is getting wing feathers and belly feathers.
They sometimes look like they want to get flying, but it will be a while.

They sure grow fast! I guess you see them every day and aren't as surprised as I am.

There's nothing cuter than a fluffy bird!! Too bad they don't stay that way!

I've seen this site komatpillar.com There are lots of heavy construction equipment and machineries. Caterpillar, Volvo, bulldozer, mobile excavators, Liebherr, and more. Other heavy equipment companies worldwide advertise there.
