    LOL, those belly-rubbing pics are HILARIOUS!
    That one just has a look that says, "Well, get on with it!" [​IMG]

    Too cute. And it's great to get another look at the plexi-walled brooder again!

    How do you do that? When I try they just chirp really loud and try to get away! I would like it if mine would do that...[​IMG]

    Just pick up the bird, make them calm down a bit, turn them over, but their back down, hold till they go limp. Done! I've done it with big adult roosters.

    That is funny Freebie's daughter does the same thing to her new 3 wk old chicks! I saw some baby Guenia(can't remember how to spell) Keets in the feed store the other day, they were so cute, they looked nothing like they would all grown up! I loved your pictures.

    Thanks everyone! I was away from them for a good part of the day and I swear they done changed a whole bunch. They grow so fast. My daughter and son just hold and love them and then start rubbing their little bellies and lay them over and rub some more. I am so happy cause they know my voice and when they hear me they all come running to me. [​IMG] My husband thinks I am crazy cause I talk to them so much. Take Care Yall!
