    Hey I got my new chicks in today. 14 of them, 7 Barred Rocks and Seven New Hampshire Reds.
    I had them in the brooder this morning at 7:30 and they all huddled underneath the light so I stuck the thermometer in and it said 50 degrees!! I had to run down to the hardware store and buy a heating bulb. Now its running at about 97 degrees. PERFECT. I ll try and get some pictures in a little bit.

    Sorry I was gone all day to the show. I got them from Ideal. I just want them for the looks and eggs.
