    So I work at a small zoo and we have tons of free roaming chickens.... We also have some farm dogs that roam. They usually are pretty good with leaving the chickens alone, and the chickens are usually pretty good with staying away from the dogs. However, the other day was a little different. I noticed a few of the dogs causing a fuss and in the middle of it was a little, newly hatched, black chicky. Lucky for it, I was able to come to the rescue. Me and my fellow zookeepers have searched for a mama with new chicks and haven't had any luck... So, now Im the proud mommy of my very first chicky :eek:) Its pretty cute, it follows me around and sleeps on my shoulder. And with my wonderful sense of humor, Ive decided to name it Chicken Nugget :eek:)

    Just wanted to share my excitement,
