Danz, do you have pics of your new wagon and maybe a link for where you bought it? Same for your grain bin. I am still buying my feed in 50-pound bags and often think there has to be a better way, with the volume I am buying, but I'm not currently set up to store it any other way.
My three week old chicks got moved outside permanently two days ago to prepare the brooder for the new hatch that is ongoing now. They had really outgrown the brooder anyway, so it was time. It was 40 when I got up this morning but I went out and checked on them and they are doing fine. There are enough of them to share body warmth and they've been acclimated to being outside since they were two weeks old (out by day, in by night between 2-3 weeks) so they seem to be doing fine on their own with no heat now.
I had one chick hatch 2 days early and a full day before any others from this hatch. It is still in the incubator but is now more than 48 hours old so I'm just waiting for a chick that is zipping to get done and then I'll pull the first few hatched out and move them to the brooder.
I guess today we get a break from the winds and then they're supposed to be gale force again over the weekend. I know its Kansas but even so, I'm tired of trying to work outside in that non-stop wind. Hopefully we'll get some rain out of the storms they're calling for this weekend.
Well, I thought I'd take a pic of my silly bird that went broody on the roosts in the main coop. Obviously I can't give her either eggs or chicks sitting up there and when I tried to move her to the hoop coop, she found a way out within minutes and hightailed it back to the main coop. So I guess she'll just perch up there until it occurs to her she can't raise chicks on a 3' high roost.
