    I found three feral chickens, one day old.
    Put them in a box.
    Went down to the tractor store to get supplies. They told me I had to get all these things to keep them alive. I live in the rainforest.
    But I just got the medicated feed & water containers.
    I live off grid I'm not going to put on a lamp.
    So that night I put the chickens next to my
    85 lbs yellow Labrador Retriever. Inside on her bed.
    They slept their cozy and warm for 12 hours straight.
    Now a week old.
    But since I caught them feral and they were outside do I need to give them some other kind of medication also?[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That is the most inventive way to keep chicks warm that I have ever heard of. [​IMG] Of course you don't have our crummy weather.[​IMG]
