    Due to the size and set-up of our brooder, I occasionally have to actually step in the brooder when it's not possible to just reach in from the sides. Here's what happens when I do:

    Is it me they love or just the thought of more food?!

    Mine no longer wait for us to cross the yard to the new coop, they are at the pen door cheaping as loud as they can. The second we open it, they are all over our legs and Peep is the bravest and claims a shoulder. After a few minutes of not receiving bribes, they flutter around to check out the grass. I attempted to hold a worm today to get a shot of one reaching for it .... yeeeeahhhh ... I'll get the sensation back in my fingertips some day LOL!

    Yesterday I wore sandals into the run with my 2-month olds. I guess my toes looked like big, juicy mealworms!

    But I'm starting to suspect my SO is a tad bit sadistic. He suggested I paint my toenails red. [​IMG]

    Quote:hahaha I was going to suggest the same thing, but I know I am sadistic. I bet flip flops and the colorful stripey toe socks that my wife likes to wear would illicit weird chick reactions too.
