|Easter Egg Acres||
Entering Week Two with a good cleaning and still 104 strong. The chicks were having fun being wild and crazy kids today as I had to clean with them in there. We do half the room. Re-bed that half. Move the food and water and clean the second half closer to the door. They ran about like crazy on their own and without being harassed in any way. They played on the mountain and had fights with each other and my feet. They are growing so fast, they naturally rest on their bellies to eat. It's been warm enough to turn the brooder lights off during the day saving energy if I'm home to warm them up if it storms.
They are feathering out on their wings and tails already and some on the chest and shoulders. Eat, eat, eat. Its the driving force in their lives but they are living and picking on each other and working the dominance angle of who gets the best spots. In short being Chickeny... as suggested like what Joel says being Piggy...
The smell and mess has almost driven out the cuteness but then they look at you. They are what they are, its what they do, and we appreciate all they do for us. I will make sure they are happy and healthy, right up until they aren't. We Honor Them the whole way.
