Vince brought home a big box and worked for the longest time getting the baby chicks’ new home ready. They have grown so fast and the Rubbermaid container was getting a bit cramped. The box was way too tall so Vince cut it down and it is thick cardboard and cutting it wasn’t easy. We lined it with newspaper and then loaded it up with wood shavings. The chicks were thrilled with their new quarters . . they kept flying around and running like crazy. The wings are beginning to work but the brakes may not be working so well. They usually stop by running into something or each other.
They’re now in the downstairs garage and it’s a bit cooler in there so Vince turned up the downstairs heat. You know what happens to downstairs heat . . it rises upstairs so tonight may be a battle of the thermostats.
Here’s a little video clip for you viewing pleasure (please excuse my motherly instincts to say a bad word when one of them ran into the water jar).
