@WingedFish - Have you noticed if any of the chicks have any distinct personalities?

@Ideal_Hero It's a bit too early to tell, but I have noticed that Lucina and Peach are slightly more friendly then the rest. Other then that it'll be a little while till their distinct personalities surface.

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

Day 5 Yeah I know I missed a day, but I haven't been feeling too good lately which is why I didn't manage to get a picture yesterday.

The wing feathers are very apparent now, plus the first signs of tail feathers are starting to appear.

By the way, I've still to name the other four birds. Any suggestions?

Toki Tori might make a good name for one of the chicks. "Toki" and "Tori" could also be two separate names.

Day 8. Yesterday (right now is day 9, didn't take one today) the girls have had their first outdoor excursion. It was quite nice. The circle is a plate of water by the way.
Untitled
Peach is a bad influence apparently. She kept trying to squeeze through the "fence" and get out as you can see in the picture below. Yet oddly she was at the side I was sitting in front of. Suppose that's a good thing as it means she isn't fearful of me. Next thing I knew though, Viridi and Samus tried to follow her example. Oh well.
Untitled
Also today they had a delicious treat; live earthworms and wood beetles. Yum. ;)

Oh, and as for your suggestions, I don't think Flicky or Plucky is what I'm looking for @Starman-Super, sorry. Anyway, the final two are still awaiting names, however please keep in mind I'm trying to give them all Nintendo girl names.

Are they pets, Wingfish? What are you gonna do with them when they grow up if you're not gonna eat them?

@Retro_on_theGo I like to call them pets with benefits. They'll give us eggs, plus they made great biological food recyclers. If there is old stuff in the fridge, I give it to them into of tossing it out with the trash. They get a treat and you don't waste food since it goes into making more eggs. That, and I just like having them. I am a bird person after all. :)

I'd love to get a pet chicken... Sadly, my pitbull would probably make her stay a short one... Shivers

Day 13. I've missed quite a few days... Just haven't been able to find the time. Anyway, this is their second visit outside.
Untitled

For the picture below, left to right: Viridi, Samus, Emmeryn, Lucina, Peach, to be named, Midna, and Zelda (bottom left corner).
Untitled

A close up of Lucina. Notice how her crest has fluffed up and is starting to fall over her face.
Untitled

The last chick to be named. She is the smallest since she isn't growing as fast, perhaps due to her possibly being a late bloomer. But health-wise she's perfectly fine. Still not sure what she should be called...
Untitled

Developmental notes: They have officially gone into the awkward "teenage" phase as you can see by the spread of adult feathering. The combs (the red fleshy stuff on top of the beak) are now fully visible, they are now very good at jumping, and are testing out their wings, which are more or less fully feathered.

They're so cute! Especially Lucina. :)
The unnamed one kinda resembles an eagle to me. Call it Braviary! Or Kanade!

So, if you're naming them after girls from videogames... Here are some ideas for the last one:

From Wario: Syrup, Mona, Kat, Anna, Ashley, Penny.

From Resident Evil: Jill, Claire, Rebecca, Ada, Sherry, Jessica, er... The other female companions from other games.

From Donkey Kong: Pauline, Dixie, Candy, Pipsy.

From Star Fox: Crystal, Katt, Amanda, Lucy.

From Animal Crossing (chickens): Ava, Betty, Becky, Leigh, Plucky, Rhonda, Goose, Egbert.

Viva Piñata: Miss Petula, Leafos, Cluckles.

Pokemon: Latias? Any bird pokemon would do, I guess.

Final Fantasy: Sara, Maria, Aria, Rosa, Rydia, Porom, Lenna, Faris, Sarisa/Salsa, Terra, Celes, Relm, Aerith/Aeris, Tifa, Yuffie, Rinoa, Selphie, Garnet, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Eh.... I can't think of any other names or game series right now.

This is what she'll look like as an adult.

I've been thinking to give her some sort of name involving fire, then it hit me.
Moltres!

So now, at last, they all have names. I guess I can say without a doubt that I have the most uniquely named chickens in my town. :)

Day 51 (man I've missed over a month!).
To make up for missed pictures, I've taken individual ones for each bird.

Midna. She is apparently not the breed she is supposed to be. The breed I ordered was supposed to have all black feathers, while she clearly has white barring. I speculate she is the same breed as Zelda, or something similar. But I don't mind either way.
Untitled
Zelda. She can be told apart from Midna by the lack of a large black spot on her beak.
Untitled
Samus.
Untitled
Peach.
Untitled
Lucina. My personal favorite. With the exception of a long white patch on her chest, she now has the appearance of a full grown adult.
Untitled
Moltres, or Tres or Tresy for short (pronounced trace(y)). She's still behind in terms of growth, but makes up for her lack of size with speed and tenacity. In fact she is the swiftest of the flock, which I why I had to hold her down in order to get a clear picture!
Untitled
Emmeryn. Possibly the loudest of the group. Ironic since the person she's named after is quiet and soft spoken.
Untitled
Viridi. My mom's favorite and one of the calmest while being held. She has this odd behavior that whenever she grabs an earthworm (I offer some as treats from time to time) she runs and jumps around like she's in a panic. And to think she's named after a certain Goddess of Nature...
Untitled
This is the makeshift pen they have moved to after outgrowing the dog cage. Man the basement is so freaking messy eight now...
Untitled
And finally, the coop that just came in today, which will become their permanent home. Though by the time they do it will be moved to the edge of the woods in my backyard, and the run (the fenced in outdoor area) will be expanded.
Untitled

Whew, took a while to upload all of that! But I know at least some of you like this thread, so I hope you enjoy. :)
