Precious! They grow SO fast, enjoy every minute of their tiny little fuzzbutt stage!
Side note - you may want to move the waterer and feeder a bit apart - the way they are situated now makes much of the feeder inaccessible, and hungry chicks will gladly walk around in the waterer trying to reach a feeding hole since there are more chicks than holes accessible as it is now.
Thanks I will. Any hints on keeping the bedding out of the water? Put paper towel down around water it didn't make a difference
Raise it up off the brooder floor -- even at the fuzzybutt stage they are able to reach an elevated waterer/feeder. Place it so that the rim is at about chest height and continue to raise it as they grow. I like to use pavers as they provide a nice, large surface and give a stable base for the feed/water to be on. Alternatively, you can hang feed/water stations. Another option is to use a nipple waterer.
