Peeps doing well
Here’s the little peeps when I went out to see them this morning. I’d added a small portable heater last night which seemed to work much better than this light blub as it spread the heat out more all over the floor so the chicks were more active.
I gave them some feed and changed their water.
I spent most of the day welding up panels. This was the last one I welded up today. It will be used to grow stuff to keep the chickens from eating the roots of things I grow for them. I’ll call it the a grow panel. They’ll be able to walk on the chicken wire to eat the tops of the plants but not be able to get to the lower part to kill the plant. This is laid on the ground about three or four inches off it. I saw smaller ones used on YouTube.
Heating up the chicks
I checked on the chicks several times. The day was cool so I turned the heater on early today. You can see they don’t have to huddle under the light with the heater going. With the heater on they are more active and eat and drink more.
I tried to work at a slower pace today, just puttering and still got quite a bit done.
That was my day for a nice one.
