This morning I was late getting out to release the birds from their house. While I was running the pan of fresh water from the hydrant I looked over and one of the black banty hens had stuck her head out from under the door and was looking at me. I did'nt realize that without shutting the inside door there was that gap there between the sill and the outer door.
Here is something funny I saw once...wish I could have gotten a picture of it: when I had about two dozen little chicks once...I had them in a brood box with a heat lamp in one end to keep them warm. One particularly cold morning I walked out to the coop to check on them before I left for work...there they all sat in a circle around the heat lamp...all their heads were facing 'out' away from the heat...all their little behinds were backed up to the light bulb...when I opened the door they all looked around towards me, but NONE were about to move from the heat source! I couldn't have arranged them in a better circle even if I had tried! Wish I could have gotten a picture of that!
Eavmae, maybe she will do it again. I know, carrying a camera around gets in the way but sometimes it is worth it. Vriginian, your chicks in a circle warming their buns is cute to emagine. (never thought of chicks having buns until I typed that)
