    Mother hen decided at exactly 3 weeks they should start sleeping up on the roost.
    I was surprised when I looked in and saw them all up there. She usually had them in the corner in a nest underneath her.
    It was so cute I had to share. Oh, and tell me that baby in the middle is a rooster????

    Awww, how sweet is that. I have never seen a baby chick that young with a red comb...that has to be a little roo. So cute.

    That is so cute! Our broodies have never done that.

    And I agree, the chick in the middle looks like a rooster.

    Quote:I didn't think she looked too comfortable either! LOL and she balances all night like that! The roo in the middle even has little waddles at 3 weeks and was born with that red comb. I never knew they were red so early.
