These are our new baby chicks (we got them Friday), and I must say, they are adorable.
I don't know what kind they are (maybe white leghorn?), whether they are girls or boys...They were hatched in biology class at Drew's and Emily's high school.
They're living in a brooder box in our shed. Tim and I made the brooder box from a water heater box.
It's a very big brooder box. The days are warmer now, so during the day I lift the heat lamp up. I use fans to keep the air circulating in the shed (it can be stuffy), but the breeze doesn't "ruffle their feathers" in the bottom of the box. The temperature is supposed to drop down into the 30s Tuesday and Wednesday, so we're going to move them into the guest bedroom.
(Don't worry little chickie, everybody poops!)
Hope you're all getting ready for a great spring break. The chicks and I wish you a happy Easter!
