Last week one of my 2 week old chicks dug his way out of the yard. I came home to find him sheltering from the rain under one of the roosters on top of the chicken tractor. No idea how long he'd been out, but I'm assuming the roos also protected him from becoming hawk food. Last night hubby goes out to lock up the chickens for the night and all three chicks are in the yard huddled under my other rooster. He was afraid to walk because he was so worried about stepping on them. When hubby tried to move him, he held up one shaking leg to avoid stepping on the chicks. Yes, I plan on arming myself with a camera from now on to capture the cuteness on film. I've always been cautious about allowing roosters with chicks because I assumed they would try to hurt them. Has anyone else had a rooster or roosters who actually took care of the chicks?
