Day 16: Startin' to grow adult feathers!

It’s cold here in Madison, Wisconsin, but these birds won’t let the cold get to them. Happy and healthy, our Cornish Cross chicks are starting to enter their “awkward dinosaur” phase. As their chick feathers molt, their adult feathers come in downy and warm! Thankfully, their brooder coops are prepared for this weird Wisconsin weather. They are on track for release to pasture in 1.5 weeks!
