    she has this game that she plays with the baby chicks. its called ?chicken hunting?. its where she chases the chicks in my 6' by 15'' brooder i built. when she catches it he kisses him/her then goes to the next one. she does this every day for 30 minutes. she quits when they are 5 weeks old.

    hope these chicks are ready when they hatch. lol

    Oh, we do that too! But a little different:[​IMG]

    In the past our chickens were living free-range. When they had chicks, we would take a little net and chase them around! But later on we knew that this was bad because we're separating them from their mom and they get lost. But yours, chasing in the brooder, sounds fun! [​IMG]

    Oh and we call it: chick hunt

    Good luck!
