Wing-Assisted-Jumping

25 Color Ranger Chicks in Two Large Cardboard BoxesOn Monday, I was cleaning out the chicks’ feeder and refilling it with some yummy chick feed. As I went to put the feeder back in the smaller of the two boxes of chicks, I saw a single chick setting on the top of the box wall. It was just sitting there; apparently it was pondering what I was doing. Well, I thought I’d better get you guys in your coop or next thing I know I’ll wake up to chickens on the dresser mirror. Last Thursday, I split them into two boxes because they were so big that crowding was becoming an issue. Now, they are learning to fly …if not fly then “wing-assisted-jumping”.
