We will learn to out run those humans!

Please stop the suspense! People keep begging us. Please tell us what they are. The thing is, we can’t tell you what we don’t know. Baby birds look like baby birds. Some of our visiting “experts” have suggested turkeys, turkins, guineas, bobwhites, quail, and all kinds of rare and exotic things. But in reality it’s usually the usual and mundane that gets left behind, not the rare and exotic. We’re still assuming they’re baby chickens. Many are learning to fly and make it up to the top rafters to roost now. Combs and waddles are beginning to grow. Some are big, some are small. The one thing we know for certain. They are birds.
