    Well last night was the first night for the 6 week olds to sleep in the big house.
    They were very upset that I closed the little door to the brooder and kept chasing after me to tell me about it all day yesterday. When I just laughed and told them they were big kids now they gave up on me and ran after every human who came into the yard, yapping up a storm and going back and forth between the human and their brooder, it was pitifully funny, until night came and they instigated a sit-in protest . . . under the coop.
    I had to lay on the river rock and chicken poop and squeeze my arm under to drag out one crying baby at a time (26) and force them to sleep in the big bed . . .
    this morning they are pretending like it never happened.
    lol, this is the best breed I have ever had, they have the most super personalities. They not only recognize me, but they love my husband as well and he never feeds them. I have my doubts about selling any of them.

    South missouri from a lady down there! I have connections! LOL. [​IMG]

    When you are a hatchaholic, you find your egg of choice pretty easily. There are pushers(I mean enablers) out there everywhere! (kind of like drugs for the drug addict!)

    Wow that is 2 hours away from me! PM me.....where are you located EXACTLY? There may be backroads that we can get together quicker.

    Edited to add. I already have 2 mouthy teenagers. Do yours work and mouth or just mouth. I can handle workers that mouth not lazy mouthers! [​IMG]
