The Brooder/Kid pen...
This is what Moses, Jake and Bruce stayed in,
when they were inside.
When the chicks are ready to spread out
I will have to like the sides with chicken wire.
May have to divide it in half and put baby goats in one side..
If they ever have them.....
Heat lamps are clamped and zip tied to keep from falling..
they are about 2 ft from the floor right now..
I will slowly move them up and reduce to one till time to go outside..
As long as they are scattered around
and not bunching up they are warm enough.
I scared them here... Didnt mean too...
We zip tied the boxes together to enclose
and make as draft free as possible.
Marbles in the water? keeps them from walking in it.
So they have nice clean water most of the time..
I sprinkled a little feed here and they went nuts!
Banty next to full size chick...There are still no goat babies! I thought Sunshine was going to go early but she didn't. I checked the calender again and the first possible due date was March 9th according to when the buck got here... So now Your guess is as good as mine!Lol All the bellies and ligs are doing their thing you know dropping and disappearing...
Its not to bad out today a little chilly.. I couldn't stand it though I got charcoal and going to grill burgers and hot dogs for supper.. Making Potato Salad and a green salad too.. Yum.. I am ready for real warm weather..
Have a good evening everyone!
