I volunteered to farm-sit for friends of ours, who will be gone for a week. They left last night and it took my DS and I 2 hours to feed, water, let out and milk the 4 goats, 2 rabbits, 2 dogs, unknown cats, and 17 chickens. Well, 2 of the show bantam hens were broody and guess what... they hatched 2 baby chicks so far! We called our friends to let them know and they told us to bring the chicks to our house to take care of for the week! I guess we'll be adding to these two as they hatch. My own chicks aren't coming for another 5 weeks and the brooder is not finished! We quick washed out a plastic storage tub, threw paper towels on the bottom, plugged in my Ecoglow chick brooder and put it on a nest of towels, added a stuffed animal, and a tupperware lid of water, and tossed in the 2 half-dollar size chicks! I don't have a chick water thing yet (wanted to have DH make nipple waterer) and need to buy chick starter as our friends had none. They were peeping away before and now I think they are asleep under the Ecoglow, tho I hear an occasional peep. Please say a prayer for me, as I would hate to mess up anything as this is my first time with any animals other than cats and dogs. Will post pictures as soon as I can!
