Too friendly?

I was making dinner in the kitchen when I hear peeping behind me.  I turned to find the chicks watching me through the screen in the window.  I think I've created little monsters!

Re: Too friendly?

Awesome pictures! :thumbsup: They are bold, sometimes too bold maybe. I am often scared of stepping on them. They look like they are contemplating how to get into the house to be with you, maybe snag some treats :P

Re: Too friendly?

Speak of the 'devils'--A few days earlier I WAS relaxing on the couch watching TV and if the little blyters didn't come parading through the livingroom!  It was a beautiful day and I'll often leave the front door open.  I think I'll have to get a screen for the door :)  I told them they'd end up in the frypan if they didn't get out.   They aren't bothered with anything.  It is funny to watch them around the dogs.  I have a dozen dogs and the chicks just mingle among them like one of the pack.

Re: Too friendly?

Love the pictures, they are too nosy, now once they have discovered that you are in the house you will wind up with a window sill full of EO's, LOL  I love the shot of your dog behind the EO, my dog does the same thing but she wait for them to poop and then.........eats it, YUK :sick:

Re: Too friendly?

How many pullets and cockerels did you get?  Mine are inside an electric poultry fence but they are right at your foot as soon as you enter the pasture.

Re: Too friendly?

I just have one cockerel and three pullets.  I also have 4 Arucana pullets from McMurrays.
They have a nice chicken coop which is totally fenced but more often than not they are out.  That will change with the winter ;)
