Here chick, chick, chick!
We have our spring chicks. Ron installed our nursery box on the wall of the chicken house. The slanted lid keeps the big chickens from roosting on top of the box. There is a light inside for warmth for the chicks. However, we failed to see the return of winter. So far so good with the chicks surviving the cooler weather. Today it is going to get worse. We are adding a second light to keep the babies warm. If this works, we're good for years to come. If it fails I'm gonna be short some spring chicks. Oh my beautiful Golden Comets!
