    I wish I had my camera out there! It was so sweet. I took all eight for a nice romp outside in the dirt and they played out there for about 40 minutes. I then built on an extension for their brooder while everybody watched and then settled back to see what they thought of it. Well, they were so zoomed out from playing that they all flopped down together and began taking a nap! It was so peaceful watching all their little synchronized bodies breathing. Occasionally someone would have a little preen and wake everybody up, but within seconds they'd all be asleep again.

    I almost felt like I was a part of their group nap! It was so sweet to be able to 'share' that with them. [​IMG]
