    I rescued these 2 from the highway 6 weeks ago today. They were just tiny, yellow fuzz balls then. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Using me as a perch. They 1st started doing this a week ago, when I brought them some food & couldn't wait for me to give it to them & flew into my arms like falcons. [​IMG]

    Look at those claws.

    Alright Airial/Aero... what's with all the butt pics? Face the camera like Feathers.
    [​IMG]

    Feathers decided to see the view from my shoulder.

    I recommend long sleeves for those with sensitive skin. Finally a face pic of Airial/Aero, but he/she is looking down.

    Now they got me building this...[​IMG]

    @ fishnet1971... Ahh yes, the dreaded chicken math I've been reading about. [​IMG] I had to resist with GREAT effort not to buy any of the peeps, when I was at TSC buying supplies for my chickies. It appears these 2 have infected me & now my condition is chronic. Not sure how long I got before I succumb to Chicken Math Syndrome, but I know I won't make it after I finish the coop & run.

    So you think Airial/Aero is an Airial ? I suspected it might be a rooster, because of the red coloring on its comb where as Feather's is orange. I hope they are both hens. They cry when they get separated from each other. They hate being apart.

    You should really have a few more because those two will rattle around in that big old coop :D Plus after you taste real eggs you won't be able to stomach those pale commercial eggs. Good for you for rescuing them!
