The Safety Corner
There is a reason that people are called "chickens" when they are afraid of everything is because chickens are SO NERVOUS! We keep trying to give the chicks a little bit of greens and they are terrified of lettuce! This morning I put a very small piece of lettuce in the far right side of their box. They all ran to what we call the "safety corner" the far-left corner between the food and the water dish. They have been there for HOURS even though I removed the lettuce a long time ago. If it gets warm tomorrow we might let them explore outside for awhile-- if they can overcome their fear of green things long enough to explore the grass!
