    Was just wondering if anyone else had a chick that liked to hitch piggyback rides? I have one little Easter Egger that likes to stand on the feeder and jump on the backs of the bigger chicks. I have 3 weeks mixed with 1 weekers, the EE is a 1 week old. Of course this makes the older ones mad and it turns into a rodeo in the brooder. Could this be an indicator that the EE might be a cockerel, we were hoping it would be a pullet.

    I have a cornish cross in with a broody hen that is always on top of her, unless it is sleeping under her. It is funny, little guy managed to jump right out of the stock tank too by launching off of her. It is really cute thought and the hen doesn't mind at all.
