    I was out cleaning the quail pen today (I have learned to never go out to the quail pen with out my camera) and saw these two sleeping in the sun. I managed to get only one pic before they woke up.
    Scared the dickens out of me until I realized they were really sleeping.

    That would have freaked me out a bit.

    My chicks pulled the dead chick pose a couple of times. That always freaks me out. I admit it. I wake them up just to get them to sleep a different way when they are doing that.

    My chicken chicks do that when I am cleaning out their pens. I always think they are playing opposum because the hawks are flying above. If I have the broom I have to give them a little poke or two and then they get upset and find another location to do their dead pose.

    That is cute. So now we know. What they really want are pillows.

    Quote:I had the opposite happen the other day. It was dead but still sitting upright. It got stiff that way. I'm not sure how long it was sitting there like that.
