Two-parter here: Just thought I'd share this idea here, in case you're a saver like I am. I have been keeping our poly feed sacks for whatever reason. (They do make great trash bags when cleaning up old metal, sticks or things that will poke through a regular trash bag.) Our temps have dropped the past few days though, and our young birds are out in the coop now making their introductions. The pullets are in a wire dog kennel, and seemed kind of chilled, so I split a couple of feed sacks and attached them to the sides of the kennel with zip ties. The improvement in temperature and the activity level of the pullets was markedly noticeable. It was a quick, easy and FREE way to block in some heat without having to buy anything. Second, I have a cross-beak (I think pullet but might be a cockrel). It's developing a lot slower than the others though still has a full crop and gets plenty to drink when I check. I'm just wondering though if I should take it out from with the other pullets and keep it by itself so it can have an open pan of food, etc. If I do, should I put another pullet in with it to keep it company? Thanks.
