My Babies Are Here!

51 babies shipped on Tuesday and arrived Thursday from PA!  I'm very happy to have animals to tend to again.

Allison had to pick them up for me because I was at work.  Due to the unforseen electrical failure, she had to keep them in our kitchen until I got home and could fix the issue!

I've always enjoyed spending time with animals.  20 minutes in a pasture with the sound of cattle grazing and moving around, does wonders for me after a long day.

These little peepers have just the same effect.  I can stand out there in my trailer and watch them run around doing little chick things for hours.  Just ask Allison.

I spent the week before we left on vacation prepping for their arrival.  I needed to get my trailer all cleaned out, throw down some pine shavings, and lay out feeders and waterers.

The fruits of my labor are below, a warm, dry, well ventilated spot, just for little chicks.

I also had to build and install the "shutter" panel you can see up there on the inside wall.  I still need to get some hinges on it though, it's not able to open in its current state.

It'll only be a couple weeks before they outgrow this area and I will begin letting them into the back compartment of the trailer.

You're welcome to give me a call and come out when we're around!  I'll grab a couple of chicks for you to pet and admire.  ;-)
