Making sure the brooder is all set before we bring the chicks to their new home.
Well everything with the brooder is okay so it was time to get the chicks. I could hear them chirping as we opened up the truck door.
The feed store owner recommended for us to give them warm water when we got them, so the little things wanted to hang around the water cooler for warmth. I had to keep taking them out of the water and after awhile I would take them and put them near the warming area to get warm, and finally they figured out where they could get warm.
Standing back and watching the chicks check out their new home.
When I went to check on them later they were doing great and seemed to be adjusting the their new home pretty good. When chicks are stressed they will do a lot of chirping, and walking into the barn I hear only a few chirps coming from the brooder.
All is good :)
