    I understand the principal of figuring out of your brooder is warm enough by what the chicks are doing, but mine just seem to enjoy cuddling!

    I had them outside today (and it was HOT) and they still all slept in a big pile in the shade.

    Is it because we have soft little ducklings in with the chickies? I would want to snuggle with them too! [​IMG]

    My chickens do everything together. They sleep together, they forage together. They are never apart even when given ample space to do so. They say chickens are social animals...I think mine just prefer being together and doing the cuddle thing. [​IMG]
