Is this becuz they are in the house, and I am usually up half the night? They sleep a bit, and even if I turn on a small light in the hall, they will get up, stretch a bit, eat some, then go back to sleep, or if I am cookin, they peer over the box to see it if looks like its a snack they want too. Anyone else? Since I am inclined to 2 am snacks, this happens a lot. Spoiled chickens! Hubby has switched back to second shift now, and my chicks WERE used to sleepin in when babies til 10 am. NOW, since they got used to him doin first shift...we wanna get up at 6! Arghhh!
