Fun fact: the flash doesn’t seem to bother the chicks.
But I shift my arm to take a better picture and they all scatter. Guess Jon and I have been playing with them just a bit that they’ve learned to run already. Hopefully a bit more exposure will get the opposite result.
We’ve replaced the newspaper with shavings. I think they’ve figured out that it’s not food, but I think they’re a little pissed that they now can’t find all the food they’ve scattered on the ground.
Also, if I flick the shavings they come running over to check it out. So that’s a fun game.
We both really want to put like a paper towel tube for them to play with in there, but I doubt chickens do that.
Really this just reinforces our desire for a dog we can actually play with.
