    OK, this may sound crazy but I really think my chicks think I'm their mama!! I spend a lot of time with my girls, talking and playing and giving treats, but this morning, I just didn't really have the extra time. Well they cried and carried on and I couldn't leave the house without going back down to the basement and conversing just a little bit more with them... they settled right down, but as soon as I left I could hear them squawking and carrying on something awful!! Have I created monsters? I couldn't find anything wrong with any of them, the heat was good, plenty of water, plenty of food. The pen is clean. What's up with these little girls?

    Or how about taking them along with you to work. Isn't there a "take your chicks to work day"? You know get one of those designer totes, like the celebrities use with their pets. You and the chicks are good to go!

    That's too funny, my co-workers and I were just talking about having a bring your pet to work day!!

    I'm telling ya... I felt soo bad when I left them this morning. Maybe I'll put a radio next to them during the day when I'm gone.

    I'm such a sappy sap!!

    I did leave some music playing for them when I was away for awhile, they seem to like it. Now that they are older and free ranging I have trouble walking across the yard because I have so many chicks following Mama!

    My chicks do that too, they also follow me around everywhere, its cute but it can get annoying when you are constantly trying to becareful about stepping on them. [​IMG]
    They also jump up into my hands when i lean over the coop to pick one up. When i go in the fencing around the coop i've always got some that like to ride on my shoes. [​IMG]

    It makes you feel so good that they love you so much, but heaven forbid if you just want to sneak a peak at them, or just go by them without them seeing you and they SEE you!! Well LOOKOUT!! You're gonna hear about it!!
