    We picked up our new chicks this afternoon ( 3 EE's and 3 Golden Comets), they're adorable of course, but full of fluff and nonsense! The light EE started pecking eyes as soon as she entered the brooder, so I kept picking her up and moving her in hopes that she'd get the idea that she wasn't supposed to be doing that. She finally stopped, so I left them to rest after they're big day. When I returned she had a bloody beak, apparently she pecked the wrong eye and got pecked back! I cleaned her up, and she seems to be ok, and the pecking appears to have stopped...I hope. As I was watching them tonight, I noticed that one EE and one Comet are already trying to figure out how to get out of the brooder! Now these peanuts can't be more than two or three days old, I can see that I'm going to have my hands full this time!
