Chick Nursery

3 Jul

The latest batch of baby chicks are a month old and almost feathered out, but we plan to keep them in the nursery until they are 3 months old. So, to give them more room to roam and a more “real-life” experience, Eddie made an addition to the brooder – the playground. Almost as big as the nursery, it has a sand floor. In addition to giving them a little grit for their developing craws, it is tidier than the wood shavings and results in less fouling of water and food.

Check it out!
