    I heard that a fuzzy stuffed animal is nice for the chicks to cuddle up with. I would..but won't it get pooped on?

    i collected feathers and bunched them together with a rubber band, they loved it! A feather duster works well!
    I tried the stuffy and it got nasty and they didnt like it!

    They love the feather dusters and it's cute to see them poke their little heads out from under it. [​IMG]

    My chicks loved the beanie baby-type stuff animals. They liked sleeping on top of them. I rotated a couple of beanie babies in and out of the brooder and was able to pull poo off pretty easily after it dried.

    Guess I could try that.
     
  7. I have 4 beanie babies for Survy and she loves them. Yes they do get nasty. I put in 2 at a time, once they get all nasty, I take those 2 out, put 2 others in and wash the nasty ones. She seems satified.

    She also likes to cuddle up with my husband, he spoils her rotten.

    Hmm...maybe I should just buy about 10 of them at the flea market and throw them out. But that's a waste...

    I have also used a feather duster.


    For cleaning I both pick and wash.
