Little yellow balls of fluff go 'live'

It amused me enormously how often these chicks fall asleep. A general air of stillness descends and slowly all eyes close. Legs give way and bodies sink down towards the sawdust.

On the other hand, it doesn't take much to wake them up again. The sound of someone new entering the room caused quite a stir. They may be sleepyheads, but they were also born nosey!

 Many thanks to Jen from Starting Over for the advice about uploading the video to You Tube and then embedding it into the blog :)


  1. They are such sweet little things! I remember when I was small being taken to see chicks in an incubator at the top of the stairs in Lewis's Department store in Leicester, where we lived - I've never forgotten the experience:)

  2. Yesterday we received our first notice for this year's poultry sales - soon!

  3. Congratulations H on the excellent video. One day we'll get your advice when we get our new video camera going. Can you make it full screen one day please? PS there is an update to comments about the redhead on our blog.

  4. Okay, now that you know how, could you 'splain it to me, please?

    This was wonderful as were the stills you took earlier.
