x2. I keep slapping my own hand, hehe. I already have quite a few chicks/chicks on the way, as it is.
So, I thought it was kind of cute - I had to clean out the brooder and the teens' "apartment" tonight, so I had to transfer everyone to the brooder first, and then the apartment while I cleaned the other living space. With four birds who are 6-7 weeks old and three babies from 2-4 ish weeks, I was sure someone was going to be getting picked on. The older girls are MUCH bigger than the little babies. I cleaned out the apartment, came back to check on everyone, and found that not only were they getting along splendidly, but the babies were mimicking the older girls and pecking around wherever their sisters were in the paper shavings. It was so cute, and I was glad that no one was fighting.
Hey Lisa, I am still so in love with these babies I got from you. Angel has been doing this thing the last couple of days where if I put my hand in the brooder, she will come over and step up into my palm. I can still see a little remnant of the umbilical cord on both her and her sister, and it is so stinking cute. The older girl tends to be more of a drama queen about being picked up, but tonight when I was moving her around, I found the 'off' button. I just started rubbing my thumb lightly on part of her collarbone, and she settled right down, tucked her head in, and shut her eyes. Even when I'm cleaning up after them, I enjoy having chickens around so much.
And, I got a picture of Angel's enormously long wings. What do you guys think about this? Pretty cool, no?
The feathers even go out a little further than it shows here, since they're kind of curled against my hand. There's not much missing, but yeah, she has glorious wings.
(Hey Lisa, don't worry about the state of your garage. I got ya beat, hehe)
