    2 of my 4 chicks run straight up my chest to curl up in my hair. It tickles like mad, so I enjoy it. And clearly they do to..
    but why do they go there?
    I'm thinking its because it is warm..?

    they are only 3 days old. .XD

    They hide up under under momma's feathers.. So i think it's warmth and safety...

    One of my silkies does this-I think initially it was to get warm, now she feels safe there.
