    This is a new chick I just got today. I think it's my German Spitz. Everytime I pick it up, it acts like it just passes out. Hilarious!

    It will stay that way just about as long as I hold it. BUT, once in a while it's little eye pops open and then shuts real fast. You know, EVERY pet I've ever had has been truly strange iin some way. I should be used to it.[​IMG]

    Aww! That is one of the cutest chicks I've ever seen!

    I think somebody is just basking in mama's body heat. Lovely 98* bed? Who wouldn't have a snooze?!

    Somebody told me that all chicks will fall asleep in your hand if you put them on their backs. This is almost true with the chicks I have but Possum will fall asleep standing in my hand!
