My SF broody Doe is going to be sorry she insisted on a second clutch of chicks when her older ones are just 3 months old. Her older chicks, the chickateers, were good little children. They were easygoing, always listened to mama, were real quiet. Doe should have been satisfied that she raised three well behaved little chicks. But noooooo....Doe decided she needed another set. I gave her store bought chicks the day before yesterday; 5 little jersey giants. I was just out checking on the little family. Two of the chicks are running everywhere, despite Doe's clucks to return to her. One is pulling on her beard. One is running in and out, in and out from under her. The fifth one is sitting on her neck, trying with all its might to pull Doe's comb off. They're little terrors! Maybe next time, like her owner who wished for broodies, Doe will be careful what she wishes for.
