I’ll let the pictures mostly speak.
Our baby chicks (and one baby rooster … see him in the pic below with the white spot on his head)
… are here. And I am in a little bit of shock. What was I thinking???
I will say I got some Momma points when I fashioned a brooder from the two large boxes the Prez had brought home.
The expert at our local 4H office, where we picked up our “babies” today, told me our box was too deep and we needed a brooder about 4 times that size … so when we came home I started cutting the top half off of each of the two boxes and taping and cutting sides … and before long we had a brooder 4 times larger and half as deep. 🙂
Mo was doubtful but quite impressed once I finished. Curly gladly loaned me his very sharp pocket knife and helped with the cutting too.
The pics include only Li’l Miss because I was too in shock at first to worry with the camera, and by the time I headed back to the shop with it Li’l Miss was the only one still interested except Mo.
But he was back at Grammy and Papa’s house working on “The Chicken Mansion.”
To Be Continued … hopefully …
