RE: Baby chics update...

When you raise sheep, you do not make pets of the ram lambs even though
they are the friendliest when young. They lose all fear of you and when
their instincts as rams kick in they have no hesitation in attacking you
in defense of their territory and mates. Works the same way with
roosters (most livestock, for that matter) although roosters are a lot
less dangerous.

Are your chicks all the same kind?  I've found a lot of variation in
behavior from one breed to another, but not so much in attitude. One of
friendliest chicks turned out to be our meanest rooster. Oscar used to
on Bill's shoulder when he was doing chores. He later would attack and
away at us for no apparent reason.

Re the drought: The lake that serves as the reservoir for our part of
state (and provides water downstream for navigation, water for other
and preservation of several endangered species) is losing a foot of
per day. It's almost as low as it was when they were first filling it
building the dam.
