Okay, first off, I have eight day old baby buff orp chicks out of the incubator, and they're cute as can be But I was wondering- one of the chicks is a good deal bigger than the rest. it's almost laughable! He's twice as big as any chick in the brooder (and he's got big, pink, fat legs ). He is also a lot fuzzier. Compared to his head, his face is so small- undeniably cute, but I've never had this before. Is he just healthy, or did it have something to do with the eggs, or what? he was the first one born :9 (and they're all dry and fuzzy now- it's not because the others are still wet Also, sometimes I lay out with the chickies and watch them run around on the carpet. When they get tired, they all try to burrow underneath me. Some go under my neck, or my hands. It's pretty dang cute. Do they think I'm the mother hen, or what? Thanks for the answers. As you can see, nothing really important. I'm just curious. I love those little chickies.
