    One of my chicks has found a new way it likes to sleep.

    I was showing its feet to my mother, who can't grasp the difference between Silkie feet and Other feet (this chick is a Silkie/Frizzle cross). The other chicks hated this; this one stretched out and fell asleep.

    That's just too cute.

    [​IMG] How come chicks don't snore? They can sleep almost anywhere, anytime, and in any position, so why don't they snore?

    I don't know - I expected it to snore! I have a rooster who snores.

    It's funny... this chick, I can hold it in my hand and it will just peep-peep-peep. As soon as it's upside-down, it's out like a light. The others are just the opposite.

    And I'm waiting for an opportune moment to play a 'dead chick' prank on some poor, unsuspecting person...

  5. LOl, thats what i think!

    my sisters cochin will get in between where her robe meets, above the rope holding it together, faces first into her stomach and sleep!

    [​IMG] That is too cute! I have had chicks sleep in some odd positions but I have to say none have been anything like that!

    That's funny. he/she is probably happy to be out of that egg and is taking full advantage of all the space to stretch out.
