I'm not sure where to post this so I put it here...hope I'm right. Anyway... Imagine my surprise today when I was walking outside and looked at the back porch to see 25 chicks running around loose! Since the open doorway is partially blocked off to keep the dog from jumping up there and harrassing the chicks I ran through the house. One of the windows on the porch only has top glass and no screen so I was afraid they would fly out the window or door if I went crashing out there. Carefully opening the door, I find my chicks walking around, pecking at the wood floor, flying up onto the washer and dryer, climbing shelves...basicly just getting into everything. I look at their home, which is just a dog kennel with the top and bottom facing each other to make it a larger area and a window screen over the top to keep the from flying out. Somehow the screen got knocked to the side and they all flew out the opening. Anyone ever try to catch 25 3 week old chicks that spaz out anytime someone gets near them?! I didn't know whether to laugh or cry but I finally figured out to put a little bit of their feed on the floor to keep them in one place and snatched them up quickly, putting them back into their home. I counted them twice and I think I got them all...but last time I thought that my dog got a snack! I weighted the screen on top of their home, hoping they won't escape again. My poor heart can't take much more after the last 2 days with these little critters!
