the chicks hatched! Not at my place. No. Fine.
These guys respect my power. I open the top of the crate and they chirp and cower in the corner..fighting to get away from me..then promptly fall asleep…it is either my power or natural behavior to keep warm..and maybe a dash of instinct. No, they must have heard of the infrequent tornados I cause in the area..POWER! Hehe
A* saw a local ad for chicks..we got a mish-mash..including a variety with no neck hair..they sort of remind me of chocobo birds. We got 8 to grow up with our 1..we figured if we were going to do 1 then we might as well do 9. Totally cute..hopefully she picked well and we get more than 2 hens in the batch..unlike last years 9. We want 6 hens come winter..cross your wings..I mean cross your chicken fingers.
For the record I was not teasing them or scaring them just for a photo to demonstrate my power..they were sleepy.
