01 Mar Chick Update
Yes – we are very lucky to have hatched all 10 chicks. We have 5 girls and 5 boys, the lighter yellow chicks are boys and the darker brown chicks are girls. They are a little bit noisy and have been chirping and cheeping all day and night. The chicks seem to be settled in their brooder box now and have started to eat the food, drink the water and keep warm under the light bulb. I have lots of video clips and even more photographs to show you all when we are back at school.
My next job is to clean out the brooder box by:
- changing the newspaper
- replacing the dirty sawdust with clean sawdust
- giving the chicks fresh water to drink
- giving the chick fresh food to eat
