Birds yet to Feather

You know those weeknights where you know get some goods at the farm store, you have your kids with you and the chicks are half price after Easter?

Heat Lamp Row

Of course we come home with a dozen chicks. They are full of down and fluff and rapidly transitioning to feathers. I’m excited to get them in the pasture behind the cattle to harvest the fly proteins!

What’s the biggest threat to the birds right now? A curious and energetic toddler that wants to pick them up. So they get a lid and a heat lamp in the laundry room.
