    I let the new silkie chicks out to scratch around a bit while I cleaned their brooder, and it looks like Cleo (our month old sebbie) decided they were just too small to be left alone!

    I picked the chicks back up, and went to clean the gosling brooder while I was at it. She decided to kidnap those babies as well and take them for a dip in her water tub.

    I think we are going to need a bigger tub!
