Baby combs

Boldest Chick (Sasso 3 or 4) loves to come out of the brooder pen. Put your hand in, and s/he comes running over to step on it to be lifted out.

This morning I noticed that s/he's going a little bald on the shoulders. Presumably getting ready for the feathers to grow. His/her comb has also started to grow, a row of tiny orange beads on the top of the head.

Today s/he stood on my shoulder, Long John Silver/Captain Flint style, and I carried him outside to see the World. The Big Girls were fascinated.
