I finally got a little smarter than the birds today. I put their waterer up on a bowl. It's staying much cleaner now. What's funny is look at the chick peeking around at Rooster. She looks like she's sayin', "Hey, whatcha doin' ?"

Today we had to go to town. I was a little worried about the chicks getting out while we were gone. See, they've taken to trying to fly around in their brooder and I just had this feeling if I left them alone, welll, I thought they might make a break for it. So, I was trying to figure out what to put on top of the brooder when I happened to look over at my laundry room window and I thought, Hey maybe that screen would work. And sure enough it was long enough, a little too wide but that wasn't a problem. So, I put in on there and went to town. We returned to 15 safe chickies in the brooder. I took the screen off and went over to the washtub sink to do something, when I turned around there was a pretty little girl sitting on top of the waterer. Whaaaaa???!!! No picture, sorry, my camera wasn't near and no way was I leaving her up there. Soooo, I'm so glad I listened to my instincts and imprisoned them, I mean made them safe before I left.
Here's a video of me hand feeding them. They are such funny little birds.
