Hey, ShabbyChix here. It hasn't even been a year between posts. I'm getting better at this! Ha.
Seriously, I am starting over AGAIN. I just believe that the problems, issues and successes that we have, here in the Interior, are beyond what others can comprehend - regarding successfully raising happy, well-adjusted, productive and comfortable chickens! I would so enjoy the company of other like-minded and determined chicken/animal lovers. No, I don't have solar panels etc. working on that!
Here's my NEW issue. I am moving, next month, off-grid, again and starting over with new chicks. Has anyone had experience with this off-grid? Keeping them warm without a heatlamp? I'm thinking maybe there is such a thing as a battery operated heating pad?
Ideas are welcome!
