I bought these little chicks for a laugh. It was Easter and I was looking forward to seeing my family and eating some lovely Easter Eggs (I was hoping for a figure of around 8, based on an average of the past years' yield of amounts 2-16). HOWEVER!
Once the chicks arrived and I had found a suitable home for them (I chose the shed as it had ample feather-stretching facility and the temperature was of a most pleasing manner), a strange thing occured. I gone back into my house to make a nice pot of tea for myself and my neighbour who was visiting whilst her husband was building a new shelf ("SO noisy that man!" she said). We sat down with our earl gray and casually looked out of the window when what did we see? The shed had collapsed! All four sides were flat on the ground and stood in the middle were 12 giant chicks, the size of pigs! They were still huddled together in the style they had arrived in the box that morning but now they were 50 times the size and looked, well quite scary! My neighbour fainted and I locked the doors, fearing for our lives.
Under house arrest is not what I expected from these 12 super fluffy 'small' easter chicks! Luckily after 5 minutes of expansion, they shrunk back down to their original 2cm heights and my neighbour regained conciousness. Since then I've had no trouble at all and they bring joy to everyone who comes round to see me.
They lost 2 points on the fun section simply because rebuilding a shed is not my favourite activity! But on the whole, a great product, very happy :)
