Today we held the chicks for funsies for the first time. It was the same dramatic, hilarious story for each chick. Pick one up, the reaction like "OH, DEAR GOD, IT'S GOING TO EAT ME! THIS IS THE END!!!" After a few seconds to tuck the feet and get settled, they all snuggled down for the head rubbing. Then were calm for the release, move on to the next one. Rinse and repeat. So much fun. As a side note, the one black sex link cockerel is noticably bigger than the other and acted very rooster-y, chasing the other around, dominating everything, blustering. At not even 2 wks I was a little surprised and put off by his behavior. I hope he's just having issues from being held and it doesn't get worse, or at least doesn't cause problems until he's big enough to go into the freezer. He ain't even a nugget right now.
