Well, here I sit this afternoon, stuck inside for the day. It is raining off and on.
I am trying to catch Rusty in the act of crowing, yes, crowing, if you can call it that. He has been 'squeaking' for over a week now. I didnt even realize what the noise was at first!
I have never had a 'chick' cockeral this young try to crow! It is just unreal. He thinks he is big man too. Strutting his stuff. I took him out yesterday to cuddle him and his big man self decided it was still okay to be a chick and took his little head and snuggled and cuddled up against me.
Chickens do cuddle. Don't believe me? Think I am nuts? Chicks will cuddle their mamas, wedge themselves under a wing...so why not? If you cuddle them through to adulthood, they carry that over with them. Phoenix does it. Who doesnt like a nice warm cuddle?
I don't have him crowing on video yet, but I will. It is just so pitiful! But funny at the same time. For now, here is a short video of the three of them doing chick things. I also included a picture for dial up folks. I know how that is. It wasnt that long ago I was not able to view so many wonderful videos posted by other journalers.
