    I think this is adorable,but whenever I tell anyone else (unfortunately I live in a place where the word 'chicken' should only mean what's for dinner to most [​IMG] ) they think I'm crazy!
    Anyway,I have 5 chicks who just recently turned 4 weeks old,give or take a day or 2.
    I allow them to roam around my room,as long as I'm there to watch them.They sleep through the night and hop back in the brooder if I leave,but the morning is a different story.
    I get up around probably 5:30 or so in the morning to make sure I can use the bathroom before my brother gets up to get ready for work,but I go back to bed afterwards.
    Of course the chicks are woken by my movement,but they stay in the box for about another hour.
    Then at exactly 7:30 every single morning,I have one of the girls (usually Scarlet) on my pillow to wake me up. [​IMG]
    Scarlet coos,Charlotte rubs her head on my face,Pepper peeps in her changing voice,Ginger climbs all over me and Clover pecks my hair tie.
    It's like they have a system on how to wake up momma!

    It's pretty cute I think,and I'll never regret it! [​IMG]

    That's so cute! What do you do about their little calling cards? Wouldn't like to find one on my pillow!

    weeelllll luckily it's usually not too bad!however there's always that one.......anywhos I usually just wash the whole pillowcase to make sure I avoid bacteria lol
    they usually avoid my pillow and bed in general in favor of the bathroom floor which isn't so bad!
