Chicks Need to Move Out!

Every time I try to get into the brooder to change out water and food or clean, the chicks try to make a brake for it, jumping into the opening. Luckily they are too afraid to jump completely out, but it makes it difficult to get anything done. And I am having to the clean out the entire box every night now! They poop so much!

Honestly, they would already be out in the coop if it would stop snowing! It’s too cold for these little girls. Is it me or are they kind of ugly at this age? Maybe their current ugly personalities are shining through. There just isn’t enough room left in the box and they are getting moody with each other.

We have to keep track of the weather to plan ahead. We need to set up the coop for small birds. They aren’t ready to jump up on a roosts and can’t reach the adult feeding stations. It shouldn’t take long to make the changes needed. All we need is the weather to warm up!

Just checking the latest weather report, it looks like we will probably be able to move them in a week.

Hang in there girls! That’s not too far away!
