    I posted previously about being a first time Khaki Campbell mom, having gotten a little one with my chicks. the very next day, I went and got my Khaki Scout her Atticus (I'm assuming genders here, I really have no idea).
    Scout and her new Indian runner friend got along immediately. Today they had their first, brief bath time (only an inch of water at most. can that be considered a bath?)
    Well, I'm think they liked it.
    they ran their bills through the water and and ran around, crouched to stay in the water. Scout splashed water over her head and slapped around the wet area, since only the drain area had water. Atti planted herself right in the deepest spot and laid there. Atti usually always wants to be held but she seemed pleased with herself, only giving the occasional look. that tilted head.
    I'm hoping his means they are happy and healthy.
    have some Pics.

    They are absolutely adorable!! The container you have them in is perfect! I would just change the newspaper to either hay, wood shavings, something in that nature.. being that they are messy with water (make sure their water is deep enough for them to deep their whole hand in it) the newspaper is going to be destroyed rather quickly! Also flat surfaces aren't great on their webs. Other than that everybody looks happy & healthy!!

    Thanks! I will definitely start changing up the brooder, Pine shavings are fine, right? Scout is a bit of a spaz and Atti is a loud mouth but their cuteness counter acts that lol, i'm such a sucker. I'm going to try to get some new pics up soon.
