The chickens are now aged 4 weeks and a bit. They now have feathers and the little crest, a characteristic of the breed, is starting to appear. The cockerels are the lighter coloured birds; the hens are darker and slightly smaller. They are not as cute as they were - there's something a bit sinister and Jurassic Park-ish about them now. I've decided that hens are remarkably uncooperative when it comes to photography - this is my very best effort. Probably the only way to get a good shot of a chicken is when it is roasted and on a plate.
