Yesterday I went a 90+ mile ccccccold MC ride, then jumped in the car to get supplies for a run. They had seven of the connectors I needed. I went to six hardware stores, and no one had them. I will just have to make do. I also bought a net for the top of the run. I see that others were talking about them. I hope it works as well as you all say!
I moved the chicks out to the back sun room about a week ago due to stench (I had just changed the litter again. It was time!) and tonight I moved them outside to the ... Well, quarantine "area".
The brooder was placed on the bottom landing with the heat lamp above it, and all but the feather footed bantam began flying around. The Cochin (I will assume for now) I put in the brooder to make her feel more secure. She kept trying to fly out, but couldn't make it. A few hours later everyone was on the center landing, perching towards the edge, figuring out positions. I assume they are warm enough since they are not too close to the lamp. I am also thinking that I someone managed to get two pullet bantams.
Now I have to make 100% sure DH follows through with a new coop for my birthday.
If not, I found a place with "rent to own" coops and sheds. Pricey, but I will make him see my way... I hope.
Anyone else (not!) looking forward to cleaning multiple coops over the next week as the weather warms up?
