    So I had 16 chicks hatch 5/21 (or so). 6 with my broody "Twinkie" and 10 in an incubator. All but 2 were moved to reside under the Twinkie chicken at day 2, but I held 2 back because one had leg issues.

    The 2 chicks that I kept in the brooder are doing amazingly, and so today I went to move them to "the farm." Bad idea... who would have thunk a chicken can count? [​IMG] Not me until today.

    I only have 8 thru 10 week olds and so no broody issues yet...but I wouldn't have thunk it either! [​IMG]
