I'm feeling like that little girl but thinking chickies comin', chickies comin', chickies comin', chickies comin'...
cause they are, tomorrow at the mill. Hope my bator chicks start pippin' soon..chickies pippin', chickies pippin'!!!!
Ok, now y'all know, I can get silly.
HA! I suspected as much all the time!!
I remember that little girl, but I thought it was on AFV. I used to have to sit through hours of that stoopid show because the kids loved it. Now, that said, I won't deny that there were bits on there that made me laugh so hard I cried down my leg, but most of it was just guys getting hit. Um yeah!
So @aart, you are picking up chicks anbd hatching others? I thought I remembered the hatching but don't know if I knew about tomorrow.....old age and no cigarettes here so the brain is on low power. <sigh>
Welcome to those of you new to the Broody Brigade! Dues are photos of your chicks and your set-up, just so those of us who don't have chicks yet can get our chick-fix!
I got a nice message from Patrice Lopatin. Actually she posted it on my YouTube a few days ago but I didn't see it until this afternoon. She was just letting me know that Sunbeam now carries a large heating pad that doesn't have the auto shut-off at all. I think we figured that out already (and @henless has the one that also turns itself back on after a power outage) but it was awfully nice to hear from Ms. Lopatin. For those of you who didn't read that part, her video of her chicks outside in a greenhouse/brooder spurred me into this whole world of heating pad brooding. I replied to her message today and told her she now has an entire "cult" right here on BYC. She and @Beekissed were the total inspiration for me first trying this. My own chicks, and the experiences you guys are having, are why I'll never EVER go back to a heat lamp!
