The chicks have reached the stage where they are testing out their wings, and they run around like little kids pretending to be superheroes. It never fails to make me smile! I mentioned this on our Facebook page and it seems that I’m not the only one who will enjoy it, so here you go!
I do have to apologize for the “test pattern” as the birds run toward the front of the brooder; it’s because of the mesh screen in the front. I tried to shoot some video of them from above, but they were nervous about me hovering and wouldn’t carry on with their wing-flapping antics. But hopefully you can see how cute they are, despite the crazy color stripes that intermittently appear.
We hope you enjoy this blog and the antics of our farm. Please check out our fan page on Facebook and “like” it for special updates there, and if you use Twitter, by all means, please add us so we can tweet with you!
