    My new chicks are 1 week old today, and when I went to check on them, one of the Buff ones was sitting on the roost. Before I could get the camera, she had jumped off. But it was so cute! I'll try to get a picture this evening.

    An adventurous one! I love that. Mine are in the big coop now, and a couple have figured out how to get up on the 4 foot high roost. They look so proud. [​IMG]

    Our six barred rock chicks are only a week old and have figured out how to hop up on top of the feeder when we take the wire cover off their little rubbermaid home. They are quite amazing little creatures.

    Mine are over 4 weeks old and I have 10. They just got the roost poles in about 3 days ago and last night I checked them before I went to bed and 7 of them were on the poles. They just look so grown up already. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I came home one day when they were about 3 weeks old & one of my little polish/silkie crosses was sitting on top of the box......about 2 feet high! She would jump on top of the water quart, then up to the side of the box!

    Your's is just too cute for words!! I love it when they use the roost, they think they are big girls when they're up there!

    My 2 week old babies were all 4 on the roost last night. I got this pic...it's not very good because if I would have taken off the cover, they would have all jumped down!

    These are my two blue EE chicks and my two black sex-link chicks.
