|Our cold, scared baby chicks arrived this morning.|
Once we got the babies cleaned up, pulled out, and set in the brooder box, we noticed that four didn't make it. :( I have no idea what breeds they were, but we ruled out Leghorn and Orpington.
The rest of them, 24 in total, are doing great.
|Baby chicks in the plastic tote. I added a small water dish, which quickly turned |
into a community pool. The top cage supports the red heat lamp.
I had to bend some wires to get my arm in and help out down there.
Here's a closer shot.
|I hung a water bottle with two nipples from the top cage. |
Now they're walking in the leaned-over bowl of feed. Yum!
|That there's cold.|
