I'm glad you got your chicks. I may have considered bringing both boxes home, too.
The mama cow reminds me a lot of myself in labor! I'm dying of laughter!
I'm glad that calf figured it out
Bogtown. I feel you. ((Hugs))
Sometimes, I think I could just drive off and come back in a couple days to see how things are going. But all the livestock would be dead, right? LOL
So these are "quail waterers". I might try them for the rabbits.
Is that red zip tie holding anything together? Or is it more of a caution flag?
I like the springy thing.
I'm thinking you take the dish out each time & pop it on a fresh water bottle & flip over & reinstall? Or is it wet outside the cage from spillage?
Looks neat! Thanks for sharing the link.
Nice chicks! I love the stripey ones the best, in the fuzzy stage.
The red zip tie is to keep them from pecking each other. It grabs their attention and they peck at it. I did it as a diversion and it worked, so now I keep them there.
They still peck at each others toes and beaks, like chicks do, but the tie does help keep them busy.
The spring comes in the waterer from Gun Dog.
The chick that is photo bombing and staring right in the camera is the one that insists on being held every night. She is a SS. They are just so curious. Her life is changing in next day or two. She is moving to a stock tank. I have eggs that should start hatching today, nothing pipped yet, but when they hatch she is moving out. I am thinking This next week I will be moving all chicks outside, Future hatches will be lucky to get a day in the house. They will go from hatcher to outdoors.
I will be gald when this wet cold ends, my knees have been killing me. Holm I wish I had your knees your age instead of my age.
I have to do Grandpa daycare this afternoon, So not much will get done around here today again. I am just too big of a pushover when it comes to doing Grandpa Daycare.. I am thinking my Grand daughter might not be happy with me today.
The kids have a small trampoline thingy they play on. It is in the house, sort of like those exercise trampoline things they sold a few years back. It has a hand rail to hold onto. Viv, (my grand daughter) decided to make a "slide" out of it by putting it on the leather ottoman and helping Cal (grandson) slide down the trampoline. I put a stop to this. Viv said Mommy lets us do this...... I said I would check with her....
Then they decided to crawl under it and she was lifting it with her feet, or knees. I asked her what she was doing. She said "playing Hercules".... all I could see was the thing slipping and falling and a leg going through Cal's head. So I put a stop to that.. The response was " Daddy lets us do this"
When I asked " really" She said they do it all the time. I said I would check with Daddy...
I did check with Daddy... his response was " they were doing what'?
Then he told my DIL what they were doing and that I had asked is that allowed..... I think her response was sarcasm.. She said,, " Yeah, we let them do that right after they have played with the kitchen knifes"..... Viv got a talking too, I guess she was not happy grandpa snitched her out....
Could be a cool reception today.
