My beloved has knowledge of my dark skillset and I have been sweeping chicks off their feet all day today, evidenced by the cold, hard facts detailed in this video.
I have been working on exposing the new flock to stimuli while they are still young. I feel as though birds have a high capacity to learn and I want to promote their growth. Today was the second day outside.
I put a 1300 watt heater in the outdoor pen and set out a brand new oil pan from the dollar store full of warm water. It was time to get these girls (and boy ) accustomed to swimming.
Initially, one brave soul dived in with reckless abandon, while the others looked on, unsure of how to proceed next.
It did not take long for the others to see how much fun the she was having. I discovered how small I had been thinking and needed to expand.
Taking one of my kiddie pools, I put bricks in the center and filled it with water.
This… Was a veritable amusement park.
They loved the pool with the launchpad!
Well, that is all for now! I hope you enjoyed the read! Let me know what you would like to see the birds doing next in the comments below!
