    This is a view from the top of the brooder. We recently hatched 5 chicks. They are the cutest things I have ever seen[​IMG]. A couple of them slept like this for the first 3 days. Flat on their back, it was so funny!!! At first we thought it was dead. Too cute for words!! This is a Buff Brahma BTW.

    None of ours have ever done that, it's tooooo cute! They would have scared me to pieces as I also would have thought they were dead.
