This made me laugh at myself. We have two clutches hatched so far and I spend way too much time watching the ones that are here. So what do I go and do in my spare time? Ooh and aww over this video. I'm sure I'm in good company here though.
Ha, ha! I think those are little piggies disguised in fluff!
What is it that they are eating so industriously?
I'm like eljay--I have chicks in my living room in the brooder, the "little bit bigger" ones in the juvenile coop, the ones next up from that that have started laying like crazy, plus all the "old timers", and I was sitting here laughing at Lorraine's nine fluff-balls chasing after yummy tidbits!!!
Thanks for sharing the video!!! I love my chickens!!!

I love chicks. I have 16 in the house and two are fluffing themselves on the kids beds as we speak! One we raise is "chippin" and in the morning either shrieks for us or hops out of the swimming pool and comes and finds us. Drives dh batty as he climbs up his pants to sit on his shoulder. Chippin dusts himself in the microfiber cover on one girl's bed and is just the most darling pet imaginable!!! If we walk too fast and he can't keep up he cheeps at the top of his lungs and then when you put your hand down he hops on it and climbs up your arm and sleeps on your shoulder after he nestle's his beek in your neck. Every year we raise a few in the house and every year dh says our house is not big enough for "these kinds of things "
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
