Two Videos with a Bunch of Chicks

Eighteen chicks, to be exact. Just straight-shot rough videos, no editing or titles. First video was taken a couple days after we received the chicks, the next video is the chicks introduction to the wonders of fresh corn on the cob. Nummy!


  1. it's like chicken crack!

  3. @virgotex - not sure what's going on with the first vid, as its working from two computers here... hmmm. Bummer.
