First flight

Bazooka decided it's time to perch.  She flapped her wings and popped up to the side of the box. Being larger and heavier, the Buff Orpington (Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Maewest) is not a flyer--yet.
That's why the wire mesh goes on as a lid. Both birds are entering the homely adolescent stage where tufts of fluff stick out among small feathers. Like typical adolescents, they're starting to test what they can do.


  1. It's fun to watch baby birdies grow up!

    Love ya lots

  2. So cute! Reminds of the baby chicks my daughter used to raise in her class in elementary school! A sure sign of spring! Happy Sunday!

  3. Won't be long and they'll be out in the real world!
