    Hi! Welcome to the adventures of Joey, a 5 week old Barred Rock chick.
    Background: Joey came as 3 week old replacement for the best chicken I've had yet, T Rex, who died a couple of weeks ago.As sweet and smart and loving as T Rex was, Joey is the opposite. Honestly, he's a little jerk and a crybaby punk (but I luv him just the same! lol) After he killed his first cagemate, he pooped on the poor things body. He's a little snot. Here's an example from when I tried to include him in our little photo shoot yesterday:
    "Yo,name Joey.You gotta problem with that? And if any of yous weirdos touch me..."[​IMG]

    "Yo don't touch me!!!"[​IMG]

    "I said don't touch me!"[​IMG]

    "go away, I'm not playing!"[​IMG]

    "Ok,I'll sit on your hand one time. (But only cuz I'm cookin up a nice runny brown one fer ya! har har)[​IMG]

    "Yous got some kinda problem wit that?"[​IMG]

    Too funny! Nothing like a chicken with some extra pizazz! Of course, that's easy for me to say because Joey's yours, lol.

    I totally enjoyed your post and pictures, I hope you show us more of Joey as he grows up.

    Haha! Thanks for the replys!
    What's up: Being from Jersey,Joey has been, of course, hitting the gym (feed trough)...and it's working...he's both a lot bigger and more egotistical than ever.
    Joey lives with and barely tolerates his 3 "uncles" (d'uncle bantams his same age) He knows soon he will be larger than they are; which I'd good because I planned on him being the protector when I integrate all 4 into my outdoor flock later.

    So, Joey's 2nd photo shoot Saturday didn't go any better than last week. It got ugly early, and went off the rails quick.
    First, all he would do is peck every little string and fuzz on the table.

    Then, when I tried to stop him, the screaming started OMG

    As I started screaming back, Joey let's out a big un. .ouchy my booty big un...
    And immediately tries to peck it..Yuuuuuuck![​IMG]
    Joey, u so nasty!wash that off your foot!

    Hi guys! (No, Joey's such a snooty yankee, he only drinks pepsi... yuck!!!
    The news is: Joey got his waddles today
    [​IMG]

    Then celebrated by leading a chicken charge on me as soon as I opened the door (yes, he's giving the orders now to his "uncles")
    [​IMG]

    But I was like "hey Joey...watch out for that first step...it's a doozy!" LoL

    Ah Joey...you rascal!
