    1) There are no quiet poopies.

    2) Roos start "warning" of danger from day one. Seriously- I kept ONE packing peanut and all he does is peep (at an incredible volume) whenever the dog walks into the room, the kids open the door, or another "danger" seems to be present. Impressive little dude. Might just have to keep him to defend the flock.

    3) If you put a self refilling jar in the middle of a lunch plate for chick feed to fall out of, they will walk in circles around it while eating.
    For a L O N G time.
