Chicks with Fiber

The chicks are now a little over 3 weeks old and don't seem to mind sharing their space with some freshly-dyed Shetland fiber.
They are now starting what we refer to as the "baby dinosaur stage". Their legs stretch out and look too long for their bodies. Many of their feathers have come in, save those on the head which are still downy.
They are now rather scruffy, awkward-looking little birds that look like nothing more than miniature prehistoric creatures.
