Not much happening chicken-wise, so here's a funny for you:

Getting a little worried about what we're going to use as a brooder. The Mr. called Sears and they've got a dishwasher box but I'm fearing it won't be big enough. I was really hoping for a refrigerator box, but maybe they'll get one in by the time the chicks outgrow the other.

Nothing going on with the eggs- still hand turning them by manually maneuvering the auto-turner. They'll be sleeping to the right tonight.


  1. What I do is order a roll of cardboard (corrugated) from the hatchery. We make it into a circle in the garage and then put shavings on the floor in the circle...oh wait, I can link you to a pic.

  2. Great idea! Unfortunately, our garage is unheated (and extremely cold) so they'll be in the house; so I need something with a bottom to it. The Mr. has a call into Sav-A-Lot and they say they've got a huge box for us (YAY!)
