When I came home from the feed store with my new ducklings I had a bit of a surprise waiting in my bedroom. I'm raising my 5-6 week old chicks(9 of them) in my bedroom because it is the only room in the house that is secure from the cats and dogs at all times, and I've had the top of their brooder covered fairly decently because they can really fly well now. Apparrently, one of the chicks(probably my big roo Buttercup) figured out how to body-slam the least secure lid section off the top at some point when I was gone. When I came upstairs with duck box in hand, I opened my bedroom door.......and I saw 5 of my chickies running around on my carpet! And, Buttercup had jumped up onto my bed! :| All of my chickies came running over to me, completely happy with themselves except for my tiny Leghorn, Vera. She took one look at me and ran for the brooder like she knew she was in trouble. I was so surprised I couldn't be mad at them..and even better yet, there were only a couple poops on my floor. Could've been much worse. lol So after I put them back away(they came back out to run later, so they did get their exercise) cleaned the carpet, and changed my bedsheets, I made a really nice, really STRONG wire mesh lid for their brooder. It was really amusing, but I don't necessarily want to encourage that happening again! I was just wondering, for those of you who raise chicks in your house...have you ever experienced a Chicken Rampage??
