Just got done cleaning brooder and my girls found a tiny shred of cardboard in their nesting material...I just spent almost the last half-hour watching them take turns chasing each other trying to get that strip of cardoard away from each other. One would grab it run and drop it--another would grab and play tug-of-war, then another would come in and take it away from both of them and off they all would go again!!! LOL.. I was there so long my hubby came to see what happened to me...LOL Then I put my hand in the brooder with my arm at an incline and my EE climber up my arm to my shoulder (twice)!!! SO EXCITING!!! My hubby agreed and wanted to raise chicks too but he isn't in to it like I am- Never the less it did AMAZE HIM TOO-she did that -I have wanted to raise chickensfor several years...and have been studying and researching it for years. He had chicks at a reatives he helped with in summers when he was growing up--so he is not new to this. But I am--but it has been a DESIRE of mine "forever"--now I'm finally doing it.
