More Chicken News and a Tooth Update

The chicks are doing great, they are now over 1 week old. They spent a bit of time out in the grass today, scratching and pecking. They pretty much have names now, the two most outgoing are Hyacinth (she's the singer) and Daisy. Sophie and Ellie have named the other two Rosalind and Celia. Celia is the little one that was very wobbly the first few days, but seems to be coming along fine. They all have some wing feathers now and a few tail feathers. We can still tell them apart by their markings, but their personalities are easier to tell apart all the time.

Here they are outside earlier today:

Anna's tooth is still hanging in there, hanging being the operative word :(. It does not appear to be reattaching at all, and I expect it will fall out the next time she bumps it. It really was almost completely knocked out when she fell, so we're not surprised. I'm trying not to worry about it and just be thankful she wasn't really hurt. I am sad at the thought of her little smile changing. Oh well.
