as soon as my internet decides to be quicker than molasses in the dead of winter!!!!




We had one little baby we were very worried about. He seemed like he was only able to stand up for a few minutes before he would fall over or sit back on his butt. We watched him eat and drink a couple of times (and poop) but he just wasn’t as lively as the other chicks.

DD2 started to feed him pedialyte  through a straw. He wasn’t forced to drink but it was offered, and boy did he drink that up. He really, really liked it. The next morning this is how he looked


Tomorrow I’ll post about our brooder. How it is set-up and why we set it up the way we did!
