If you grow sempervivum plants at some point you’ll probably notice (or maybe have already) baby chicks that have been pulled off the mother plants. I’ve watched birds do this. I have a couple of ideas why this might be happening. First, maybe the little plants looks like small bugs. I don’t know how good a bird’s eyesight is – it’s just a thought. Another idea is that many of the stolons connecting the chicks to the hen are bright pink. If you look at them they almost look like little worms laying on the soil. Ah ha, another food source reason? Then again, birds don’t really have a lot to do for entertainment. Maybe they just like to annoy us humans by damaging our plants!?!
