    Well at least attempting to. Two weeks old and an EE jumped up flapping and flew across the brooder this morning. Funny to watch, for about the past 3 or 4 day's when I turn on the lights in the morning in the room where the brooder is, they all stretch then start running around flapping and gettine some air. But this morning was a Wright bros. flight, straight across the brooder. Brooder is 45"L X 45"W x 30"H so they have room to fly. The girls are keeping us entertained on a daily basis with their antics.

Then one loves sitting on my shoulder... and launching
