    I have had them for approximately 7 hours in which I've handled them maybe 3 times total. I had them in a box for transport when I was picking up kids and then on the way home. I put them in my computer/printer box brooder with the essentials about 4 hours ago.

    They get upset when I'm not in sight. OR if they're peeping in there they'll quiet down when they hear my (no one else's, you understand) voice and when I sit in their view. Especially the smaller one.

    Someone tell me I won't need to spend all hours sitting in front of the brooder...although it's tempting b/c then I could hang here in to process [​IMG] Anyone else experience this?

    That is so cute! They love you.

    I have a hard enough time leaving my horse and driving up the driveway away from the barn. He stands at the fence line and watches me leave [​IMG] A few times "it" has worked and i have turned around and gone back and stayed another hour.[​IMG]
