    Lucy, the Dominque... She's my favorite of the chicks as she's so friendly and outgoing. She jumps into my hand everytime I put it in the brooder. [​IMG]

    My chickies' first taste of hard boiled egg. I think it's funny that everyone says that's cannibalism. NOT! =b

    They are not on the towels anymore, BTW. I had them on there for the 1st couple of days, but now they are on pine shavings. [​IMG]

    They are too cute! Chicks eating boiled eggs is not cannibalism. They absorb the yolk as they hatch to take care of nutritional needs for the first three days. It's no different than mammals drinking mother's milk until they are weaned.

    That's what I tell them! I also tell them that it'd only be cannibalism if I were giving them KFC. [​IMG]
