    That's a hard choice - chick TV or chores - hmm..... CHICK TV! You can paint the coop while they sleep. I know exactly how you feel. I just got mine yesterday and haven't done a darned thing around the house since. LOL They are SO cute and just light up when I come up to their bin and call them my little peepers. Sigh - I'm in love too! LOL [​IMG]

    Thought I would say got my chicks too my first load. I am in love and Have done NOTHING sicne they came 1/2 June and 6/7 June.
    We have 6. 4 outside with a Hen and 2 inside as Mom died.
    So they are really special as we actually had to emergency hatch the 2 inside sadly all other eggs had dead chicks in but we saved these.
    Good to hear other folk are as mad as I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Running round like a headless chicken - oops!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They are so fun to watch. But they grow up fast so fit in a little time each day to paint that coop! Good luck!

    I also vote chick TV and extra love and handling sure makes them nice when they are older. Take advantage of their chicky-ness. Congrats.
