Today we installed a gravity-based nipple water system in the garage pen.  I haven't actually seen them drink from it.  I'm hoping they'll learn how.  We tried to show them what to do.  I'm not exactly sure how to know if they've got the idea down or not without sitting in the garage watching them until I see each of them drink.  Any suggestions?


I've actually been looking into getting that system too! Let us know how it goes, I think it's much better than hauling water and cleaning shavings out of water's!! Glad they're doing well!

Glad your back!

Just switched mine to nipple waterers yesterday. I left the other water in for the day yesterday and pulled it last night so they would be thirsty this morning. I showed them this morning and after 1 got it they all followed suit. Pretty easy. And I agree that not having to clean poop and gunk out of the waterers all the time will be fantastic. celebrate.gif


Awesome!!  yea, I can't wait! Where did you get yours?

I love my nipple waterers! Mine are drilled into a small bucket and my girls love it. So much easier to keep water clean and fresh.

Bored? No way! These are incredibly cute little wee babies! love.gif

That's a bummer that they had such a low hatch rate, but these four are beyond adorable. Enjoy them!


Thanks FRF - We're sure enjoying them.  Although every day also reminds me just how messy chicks in the house are and what a relief it can be to finally get them outside!!!  My biggest challenge in the next week or so will be finding someone to build my coop and run.  I'm thinking I may need a grow out coop and then just for leave silkies I'm keeping in it.  Unfortunately my actor buddy told me it's a little beyond his skill level.  I have the plans for a coop that I think would be perfect for them since it's lower to the ground and has a short ramp.  Then the Seramas could summer in it too.  I'm envisioning a taller covered run around it.  I thought it was pretty cute though!

I am confused about their colors.  Two eggs were marked "PA" which I thought Karen had told me was paint.  I know paint does not breed true, so I have no idea how these will turn out!  Pretty sure they won't look paint though.  So one of the paints looks black and I may even have the black and paint confused.  I was trying hard to keep them all straight as they hatched, making notes, but when they dried they looked different!  The egg marked blue/splash I'm sure who hatched out of there, but this baby looks a lot bluer than splash.  So may turn out blue, maybe splash on a blue background?  Who knows?  I guess the fun will be the journey of discovery.  I love them all.

 

So here they are!  I believe this is one from a mystery "PA" egg.  Love the attitude!  And great leg feathering!

This is the other "PA" chick.  If I had to make an uneducated guess, it looks more partridge to me.

Here's my blue splash baby (maybe vaulted skull) - who had to work VERY hard to get out of her shell.  She's valiant!  (and she had just stepped in poo - sorry!)

Pretty sure this is my vaulted skull black baby

Definitely the vaulted skull Lavender baby

And lastly, my beautiful porcelain sweetie.  love.gif

Thanks for the welcomes. I spend most of my time in the Nevada (where I live right now sad.png ) thread but I'll start spreading myself around.

Saturday is "THE BIG DAY" for the CornishX - time to say goodbye to all this lovely sunshine, say their prayers and go bye-bye. They are immense I tell ya. The ones from last week last 3 meals and then a pot of soup, so with the added week, they are going to be monsters. I'm looking forward to a much reduced feed bill! 

 

I wonder if there is a market for chicken feet around here, I hate throwing stuff away (dog eats the heads)!

 

And a few gooses, and some ducks and maybe even a few bunnies. May as well get it all done at once. Hmm, I wonder, what can I do with those huge bunny feet?
