    When my chickens were still in the brooder, I would take off the lid, and they all would hop out. You can tell they wanted to get back outside because we have taken them out there already. (when they were in the brooder) Now, when I open the coop door, they come over and start eyeballing the open door and try to get out. Did anyones chickens/chicks do that? I just thought it was funny.

    My chicks always jump out but I think they do it just to annoy me. [​IMG]

    Your probably right. Lol. When they jump out they run around all over the place and it made it hard for me to keep track of. [​IMG]

    I have one mixed breed chick who is 4 weeks old. He/she is always escaping the brooder. Its pretty deep so no one every flys out. Except him of course. One time he escaped without me noticing and He was running around the yard for a few hours. When I open the lid, His first mission is to escape. He is so looking forward to freedom thats for sure.

    one of my little girls managed to escape between my legs, she played hide-n-seek in my hostas--->very large bed of hostas<----, it took me forever to corral her and get her back to the brooder, I would watch and wait and out pop her little head from between the leaves then she would disappear again only to pop out somewhere else, yikes! I didn't have to go to gym that night for my workout!
