Moving to the Big House

The chicks are moving on…they really made compensatory gains the past week or so and have earned their status as barn chicks. We moved them to the lambing barn today and put them in the lamb creep pen which works perfectly for the next stage. Here they are traveling in a box to parts unknown.

We set up the grain and water and a larger branch to roost on along with the heat lamp at 100 watts. Lately they started roosting on their little log; sometimes I’d check on them and they’d all be lined up on it. It is most amazing to see how instinctive they are.
