    For a treat last night, I allowed my chicks to cuddle in my lap while I worked on my homework. Charlotte (barred rock) noticed the cursor moving on the screen of the laptop and decided she must have it. After fighting with her to stop running back and forth, pecking at my screen, I gave up. Then Clementine felt left out, so she jumped up and noticed the heat the laptop was generating, and decided it was a great place to nap. The two chicks laid their for thirty minutes drifting off to sleep. When taking them away to their coop, they put up such a fuss. Charlotte kept jumping out of my hands and running back to the laptop. I was hoping they would see me as their mom, but I guess I now have tough competition.

    Don't let them start on Facebook. Make sure the only accounts they keep are here on BYC, its family safe.

    eta: and don't ever let her have the remote or make those long distance calls...
