    All 17 are sound a sleep. I think it's the first time in their 2 1/2 week lives. Man is this nice!

    Awww, sweet sleepy babies... they're adorable! Funny thing, I never knew it was unusual for them all to sleep at the same time--my Araucana babies bed down like that every night. Maybe I'm just lucky?

    They're becoming little poop machines, that's for sure. Would you believe I cleaned their paper towels half an hour before I took this picture? :eek: Poop poop poop chirp poop chase a moth poop poop poop... the life of a baby chick. It's clearly exhausting work--especially for that one sleeping in the grit tray.

    This is the first night that at least one of 'em isn't sleeping standing up, though! [​IMG]
