    Well my last batch of chicks no longer needs a heat lamp [​IMG]. They've moved into the juvenile cages I have in the basement for birds that don't need heat, but are still to small to mingle with the big girls. I've had a brooder set up in my dining room since mid-February. I've had chicks I've bought and new hatches in there until today. It's so lonely upstairs now that the last batch is growing up [​IMG].

    Well...... I do have 2 broodys sitting on eggs (I'll let mama take care of babies), 2 juvenile birds coming soon from a friend, and I'm picking up 2, 6 week old bantam cochins this weekend. I'm just done with tiny fuzzy butts under the heat lamp in the dining room keeping me company while I cook.

    Enjoy all of your babies!!

    Oh, that is sad. [​IMG] I am going to feel the same way in a couple of weeks.
