In the Brooder
- May 11, 2012
So I have had chinckens for more than a year now, and have had the pleasure of raising several small chicks. Therefore I know how crucial it is for them to have proper care for a healthy developement. However, my dad has this "great" Idea to buy half a dozen chicks and bring them on a campout for the little kids to play with. Normally this would be fine because I love letting young kids enjoy the small guys, but my dad insists that the chicks will be fine when left alone, overnight, in the woods, near a river, without heat, and no cage! I begged him to let me pack a small wire cage and heat lamp but he said no! Please if any one has advice as to what I should do to convince him other wise, or how to make a propper safe enclosure, I would much appreciate it!
