Chicken babies. :) [edit They are HERE!]
|Hubby working hard on our new brooder|
Hubby worked hard all weekend on our new brooder. I had my worries, as the heat lamps weren't seeming to get it warm enough, but he worked on a bit more this morning, never-giving-up guy he is. I checked this afternoon and it will hold steady at 95 degrees now, just what we need for those new chickies to stay warm. :) ...all 125 of them. I should have never doubted him. Actually 25 will go in the basement brooder, since they are layers and won't mix well with the fryers.
So, now we wait, for a box of little peepers from NM and a bigger box of peepers from IA...

the anticipation of little fuzzy bodies
postmaster's who allow me to call and pester about my expectant mail
sunshine and sprinkles of rain
