    one of my buff orphingtons is nosey, everytime you're near the brooder she jumps up on the side and sits there watching you. well the other chicks peck her from behind and she occasionally falls off the edge and cant get back in. usually it's after i have walked away...in the distance I hear cheep,cheep, cheep........cheep,cheep, cheep........cheep,cheep, cheep........

    I now know that cheep,cheep, cheep........over and over means..."I've fallen and I cant get up!"[​IMG][​IMG]
