There’s A Name For It…

Chick Compulsive Disorder;
Compulsive behavior triggered by peeping sounds heard upon entering a feedstore.
A ritual of newspapers, heat lamps, starter feed and chick dust
that one feels driven to act out again and again.
Usually, compulsions are performed in an attempt to make gosling obsessions go away.

Who can resist a Frizzle chick?

The name for this is:
 Baby Bunny I Rescued From My Dog's Mouth And Am Trying To Keep Alive.

Tess was tossing this bunny around like a cat would do with a mouse. 
When I finally shut the mower off to go see what she had,
she didn't want to give it up.
It has lived for two days now
and I am trying to feed it goat's milk
through an eyedropper.
These things usually don't end well. 
But it has to be better than what Tess was doing.

Squeal! That baby chick is just too cute and adorable and fuzzy! I hope the baby bunny does well! I have a neighbor who has a mommy and daddy that run free on his property. They had 7 babies. They are so cute running free in front of their house! They don't have dogs!

I hope your bunny lives.

that peeping you hear when you go in the feedstore is so hard to resist. I just don't think Maclolmm would welcome a flock in the truck with us. But its so hard not to take one (hundred) of them home. Good luck with the bunny. Nature is cruel, and awesome! I hope the little bit makes it.
