    I just hooped and hollard like no tomorrow. First off, I hate flies and right now they are bad. Second off, man my chick was fast! It was unbelievable to me. I didn't even know that was possible! I think they are only between 3-4 weeks old now. Now I just want to stroke them and repeat, "oh my precious." [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    My one-week-old BR sat and ate mosquitoes off of me one evening. I don't recommend it - but it was cute.
