    Here's wierd one. How often do chicks poop?On average? If I watch one poo, do I have a few minutes of relative safety before the next blessed event occurs?[​IMG]

    You never know from one minute to the next.

    I picked up a chick once to take a pic once just after it pooped... guess it decided to finish the job, on me!

    Yeah, I would have to say chicks are more unpredictable than human babies

    Darn. One of my silkies is a little needy-the others don't cuddle with her sometimes, so she screams to be held. It would be a lot more enjoyable if I didn't have to worry about her crapping on my favorite Red Sox jersey!!!

    (By the way, we have a golden,too. Great dogs, huh?![​IMG])

    CHickens look so funny when they poo.
    Their thighs kind of split apart.

    Anyway, when my chickens were chicks they pooped every two minutes. You couldn't put them on anything clean, even for ten seconds, or they'd poo on it.

    Once i picked one up and put her on my arm to carry around and she did a huge poop and it went all over my arm and down my clothes. [​IMG]

    Chickens poop about every 5 minutes. I managed to go 9 months before I was finally pooped on. [​IMG]
