Norah LOVES our chicks (who, by the way, have been moved to a kiddie pool so as to give them more space). She seriously loves them. This is evidenced by her shrieks of excitement when she gets anywhere near them and her *ahem* demanding demeanor to have one brought to her as she plops down onto the blanket near their brooder. Just recently, we allowed her to pick one up and hold it. Interestingly, she instinctively knew how to scoop one up and hold it fairly gently. It's pretty cute! And she is just so pleased when we allow her to hold one.
