OK. I’m exhausted. I watched almost all day yesterday. I didn’t get any work done. Then I was up all night. Watching. Worrying. Waiting. Wondering.
I need some help.
I’m looking for volunteers, but if no one steps up, I’ll start assigning shifts. Believe me, it’s better to volunteer, or you’ll get stuck with the 2 AM – 5 AM shift.
I’d also like the person who Tweeted the link to step forward. You know who you are. Yes, I admit, I Tweeted back, all smug and superior: “Thank god for the Internet. How empty my life would be without a live chicken cam!”
How empty indeed.
I’m eating those words now. They are almost as tasty as a plate of delicious scrambled eggs.
Won’t someone please help? It only takes one simple click. See those big words below? Yes. Click there. I promise, it won’t take but a second. One click . . . go on . . . yes, there you go . . .
GOTCHYA! Now, while you watch them (and oh, yes, you WILL watch them), please torture yourself with these thoughts:
- Why do they move as a unit?
- Is that container big enough?
- Are they getting enough sleep?
- Are idiots walking by and tapping on the glass?
- Are they using their winglets yet?
- Is it wrong to be hungry for scrambled eggs?
And the question that has been bugging me the most:
- Can they see US?
You may turn in your observation notes at the end of your shift. Include all pertinent information, such as how much sleep the chicks are getting, whether that one with the beady eyes is hogging all the food, and any and all winglet activity.
Thank you for helping to watch the chicks. I’m going back to bed now.
