Okay I've had my chicks for almost a full week now and they really do not like to be picked up at all! I support their little legs and everything. I called my husband yesterday before I left from work and told him I was going to spend a little extra time in the coop and run with them in the evenings, maybe they would get a little more familiar with me. I get home and my husband is in the run doing a little work winterizing the coop a little better. (He doesnt work because he's disabled so is able to spend more time with all our animals.) So I stand there watching him on the ladder and low and behold the chicks start jumping up at him, he gets down and all the chicks run over to his legs and start following him around . They think hes the moma! Now I call him daddy chickenbutt! . They were suppose to be MY chickens! Guess I'll have to eventually buy more and get my own coop. Boy whats a working women suppose to do?
