    I'm new to chicks, so I'm just happy watching them eat, drink, and preen themselves. I think it's hilarious when one of them picks a piece of shaving off of another.[​IMG]

    We just got our first chicks yesterday, so we mostly just watch them. We are working on getting them used to being held and petted.

    mine are super exited when i come over to the brooder - prolly cuz i bring treats! hahah thats my fav thing . giving them treats and watching them go GAGA over them. they are 3 weeks old and they really are showing personality now lol some like to fly out the brooder and into my lap and some like to be just stroked on the tummy . others like to hop up on me and just roost and fall asleep on me :)
