aart's Chick Corral

  • by aart

Have a hard time catching your chicks to put them in the coop at night? There's that awkward time when they are old enough to live in coop and run but haven't figured out how to go back into the coop at night. So every night is chick wrangling time...can drive ya nuts!   I'm too old and creaky to chase chickens...so I have to outsmart them. Thus the 'Chick Corral' was created.   2 pieces of 14ga 1x2x24" mesh, one hinged as a 'door', placed in corner of run. Open the door a bit, 'herd' the chicks along the run wall into the corral, close the door and pick up the... read more

Promised Land Farm

So, this will be my page introducing you to all my family's animals! Note that we never really decided on a farm name, but for me "Promised Land Farm" stuck, so that's what we will call our little place for now. A little background, I never planned to have chickens, ducks, and sheep. All I wanted to have were horses. That didn't quite go as planned though. Before anymore, my first animal was an outdoor cat (Snowball) we got when I was six. He only lived to be six years old when he died. During his life, we bought two West Highland White Terriers who live in the... read more

A Forever Memory

In June 2015 we ordered 10 chicks from our local feed store. When we opened the little box of peepers we saw a wonderful surprise; instead of 10 chicks we got 11! Usually chicks die because of diseases and such so that's why we got an extra but thankfully we had no deaths.    In the box we had:   3 Rhode Island Reds 4 Black Sex Links 4 White Sussexs    What a joy these chicks were!!! Their little peeps were such a glorious sound and me and my siblings couldn't stop playing with them. My mom practically had to drag us away from the little chicks.    Names are... read more

foldable wire dog crates - a good tool for every chickeneer

  • by aart

I have several of these a medium, fold-able wire dog crates approx 24"L x 18"W x 21"H. Got them cheap(~$15-20) at flea markets and they are a great tool for many situations.   Add 1x2 wire to the bottom and put tray underneath crate to observe poops and keep feet cleaner. Also easy to swap out trays for cleaning without handling bird. If 1x2 wire is carefully installed, tray can still be used inside crate if needed. Tray can also be used on top of crate for some weather protection if outside.     An ill bird isolated for observation.   Rigged feeder and... read more
