Chick Flick

A couple of chicks hanging out with their Mama :)

Meet "Yolkie" and "Sticky." How Sticky got his* name; yesterday when I went out to the coop to let the chickens out, he was stuck to his Mama's breast! I had never seen a chick dangling from his Mama before and it was a bit of a shock to see! After catching Mama hen, I had a heck of a time getting his little wing unstuck, but after careful prying and a bit of water the two finally came apart.

* Not necessarily male!

Too cute! I have quite the mental image of mama with a stuck chick hanging and peeping!
You are quite a woman!

Ok, your my chicken expert so now I'll be e-mailing you tons of questions..

I would love to get some baby chickens next spring. So, of course I'll need a rooster.

When do I add the rooster to start going from eggs I eat to eggs that will make babies?

Ok, maybe I should e-mail these I'll do that next time.

I so enjoy your blog!

So fluffily cute! How long do they stay as cute little chicks? The title of the video and entry is witty. :)
