    I was reading a post just the other day of someone with 10 day olds and they said the chicks were starting to fly around. I laughed and figured they must have faster growing breeds or something. My girls at 8 days certainly couldn't fly and SURELY they wouldn't grow their wings out that much more in just TWO DAYS! [​IMG] Holy Cow! this afternoon they were having contests as to who could fly all the way across the brooder and a couple leaped up almost 2 feet straight up in the air! The brooder walls are only 2 1/2 feet tall. [​IMG] Looks like I'm going to be figuring out how to cover the thing this weekend.

    The brooder:
