we all woke up this morning in good shape. everybody seems relaxed & active. a few of them have slightly dirty fannies. not sure @ what phase it is termed "pasty butt". not particularly eager to start wiping chick fannies, but i will sure do whatever those little darlins need. oh, do i need to be supplying chick grit? i ran into this reading yesterday & i am only giving medicated starter. i will get that grit this morning if they need it. so far it's been pretty fun & they are adorable. there is one who cracks me up. not sure which breed it is, she comes up to the front of the brooder & stares at me. i hate reading about some of the problems others are having & wondering when it's my turn. my cats are thoroughly ticked off at me because these little cheepers are in the garage making little bird noises - the cats can see them but can't get to them. oh well, they'll get over it.
