Chick Cam! Moving Away From ‘teh’ cute

You might want to watch this little video and then go back to the one from April 1 to see the amazing change that has taken place in just four days – these little guys are looking and acting less and less like chicks and more like chickens in this new one. As you can see, everyone now has feathers at the tips of their wings, they are standing up straighter and therefore look much more like chickens than the chicks in the first video. You will also see, in the beginning part, several of them flying at one another and bumping chests – these are probably rooster chicks and they are already getting into ‘dominance behaviors’. The chest bumping exercise in chickens is the same activity that you see in elk, mountain goats, etc., only they use their heads. It’s the same case of “I’m tougher than you”.

    Yep, before you know it, they’ll be hanging around with the wrong crowd, getting into trouble, and wanting the keys to the car. 🙂
