Last night - chicks and child asleep on the floor
Things are different when you buy 25 day old chicks from a hatchery. Even when you hatch your own in larger numbers things are different. We've done it all ways, bought the required 25- 1 day olds, hatched in large numbers and hatched just a few at a time and found when you hatch just a few they bond to you. And like last night, when they are large enough to come visit that's exactly what they want to do. They call to you just like the big chickens do, when they call to you and to each other and they want to be near you.
They'll be outdoors in another couple of weeks.
