Because yesterday he brought me home these guys: (except the Seabright, I bought that one)
What a good husband!!! He should give mine lessons!!!
Why is it usually only one spouse that is obsessed, and the other one tries to control the number?
I would be so happy if I was surprised with these guys!
By the way, what are you using for bedding? Is it sand?
Awww. What a sweet hubby. I wish my dad would do that. =P Seeing as we have 18 in the brooder... I think he won't.
Thanks! Usually I'm the bad one about bringing home chicks ( I brought home the one yesterday) but he has wanted some of these chicks for a while now as much as me. Yes, we use sand! (and love it)
And Layna I understand! We still have 2 silkies, a polish and a mystery chick in another brooder and yet he brings home MORE! lol
I'm getting chicks very soon, so I was curious. Do they eat it?
I guess that's a good problem to have. He could be bringing you home chocolate. o.o At least chick are sugar free!
They do eat it for grit.
And no kidding! This way I can kinda keep my figure.
Is it easier to keep the brooder clean with sand? Do you use play sand like for a sand box or what?
I heard someone (I cannot for the life of me remember who) say they use a kitty litter scoop to clean it out and it works well. I will so be buying sand if that's true!!
Yep, that's what we do. Just got a cheap kitty litter scooper and to us it's easy to keep clean. The only thing with sand is it makes a lot of dust when your sifting so I'd recommend a good dust mask while cleaning.
