Just purchased 8 chicks on Sunday for my daughters 6th Birthday and these babies have got to be the silliest things ever! They are in the brooder jumping over each other, jumping on the sides of the box, flapping their little fuzzy wings. I've had chicks before and they weren't nealy this active. At night when the house is quiet the start peeping so loudly that it wakes my kids up. I have had to put a radio next to them. They are Australorps, Welsummers & Cochins from Privett.
