    Chicks are tricky little creatures. They start reaching surprising altitudes long before they look able to. If you don't have your brooder covered, I'd do so ASAP.

    Glad you found her. :)

    The brooder wasn't covered, no...but it is now!! Little fart was inside the couch by the way. We figured it out, too..they're flying to the top of the waterer, then flying to the top of the incubator, then flying off onto the bag of bedding, then jumping to the floor. [​IMG] ...and they are 2 weeks??? we have another 4 weeks minimum before we can think about putting them outside? Lord have mercy.

    Do you have a couch in the coop? or are they in your living room?

    They're in the brooder in the corner of the living room yes...not outside yet. They're 2 weeks.
