Just had to shout it out someplace where I won't be thought completely crazy, or at least where the other lunatics run the asylum along with me.... I just my four little chicks!! They're a week old now, sprouting tail feathers and doing so well hopefully we're past the Pasty Butt scare and healthy from here on. They recognize my voice now and they like to eat out of my hand. Two of them will even hop onto my arm. I totally understand that for many people, treating them like pets sounds ridiculous, but I do think they'll be more fun to have around if they're somewhat tame. How soon can I take them outside for short periods of time? Weather here is in the high 60's. They loved the yogurt mixed in with their food during the Pasty Butt siege. Is it okay to give it to them on a regular basis? Any other foods they can have soon without disrupting nutritional balance? Here's my Light Brahma with her brand new tail feathers. Isn't she cute?
