Wasnt sure exactly if this is "raising baby chicks", or a "managing my flock" category . . .

Just doing the final check of the night, its pretty cold outside but all the chickies are nice and warm!

Enjoy

And for anybody that watches, pays attention, and is wondering . . .
This is the thermometer that reads that remote sensor, I got it at home depot for like $15 or something . . .
I use it for my expensive frogs, so I trust it for some chickens.

Watching this video and seeing my 2liter waterer, reminds me . . .

I was readin Storey's, and it says that the amount of water chicks need is figured as follows-
Take the chicks age in weeks, divide by 2, and thats how many gallons 100 chicks would need in a day.

I have 25(+3 turkeys) 4-week-old(tomoro)chicks and they go thru 1/2 gallon a day, thats right on the money!
I guess 2liter is equal-ish to 1/2g? looks about the same . . .

There was about a 1/4 of the bottle left, and in the morning when I change it, not only will it be the 24hr mark but the rest will be gone as well.
I need to make another one.

Good thing I watched
