So I put together a nursery made from an old crate. It is furnished with:
- A ceramic heater with a clamp (will not blow a fuse or keep them awake with light),
- A small water container (one that they cannot drown in),
- A second hand container for the chicken crumble.
But already some of the older chickens, with wing feathers, are able to hop up and out of the crate - YIKES! - so I have made a makeshift lid.
Meet the Peeps
Currently they have only last names - all Presidential - but the kids have little nicknames for them already - Goldie, Lucy, Loveheart etc.
Aren't they all so individual? I have never had baby chicks before in my life. I have been missing out.
