    I
    posted a video of my girls from a few days ago - they are growing (to my newbie eyes) at an incredible rate. I noticed to day some of the BOss and BAs have "wattle buds." Exciting! [​IMG]

    CUTE!! Thanks for sharing! [​IMG]

    I have the same brooder set up but I am using puppy pads rather than shavings. How are you finding that the shavings work out for you? Do they kick it out a lot over the cardboard you have on the walls? Mine kick their sand all over the place and I have cardboard up too, I cant imagine how shavings would be but I'd like to try it.

    Honestly, if you told me I'd be watching a chicken video two months ago......and yet here I am!

    Mine are 2 weeks old yesterday. It is amazing how fast they grow. Thanks for posting.

    Quote:I like the pine shavings. I keep a broom handy, though, because not only does the Barred Rock and the Australorps kick the pine shavings out, but the feed, too! Not a lot, but enough to make me have to sweep periodically. I really don't mind - in a few months they will be supplying me and some friends with eggs. [​IMG]
