Chicklets

Raising chicks in the late Fall evidently isn’t a terrible idea, these Buckeye chicks are thriving, despite nights below freezing.  We’ve got them in a brooder box in a room inside the barn under a grow light.  They’re getting in some beautiful feathers.  Look closely, that’s Jenna in the background of one of the photos eating poop off of the barn floor.  😛  Brian took these photos, I’m still gimpy.  Luckily I’m off of the walker for short distances, this is my 2nd day.  I’ve started physical therapy, which is torture in case you were curious.

    What handsome chicks! I hope you’ll share more pics as their feathers continue to come in.

    They’re so cute! Nice of Jenna to clean up for you. Glad you’re starting to feel better……and yes, P.T. is no fun!

    They are so pretty. Will they remain the same color or will they change colors? I was at PT yesterday too, (arthritis) so I know how bad it can be. But just think, you’ll be better faster with the PT. Jenna’s such a good working dog! :oP

    They are gorgeous. And why do dogs like to eat poop so much? Glad you’re feeling better!
