, a pic of some cute chicks... standing in their water before I got my anti poo cover over it.
Geezers, don't you just love their lack of planning.
So, two (surprisingly early) birthday pressies as of Friday evening. Of course someone in their haste to get the goods forgot I would need some kit to look after 'em so I've had to do what I can with what I have for tonight.
Tomorrow I will convert the under stairs cupboard into baby chick area and get some more odds & ends for them. It'll be cosy enough by the time I'm finished, in fact I could probably fit around five hundred chicks in there if anyone's got some spare.
It won't hurt to have some warm in there as that's where the damp was when I moved in, though it was fixed all this sodding wet weather makes me wonder if it'll come back.
Last year's Castle NOTA birthday animal is none too impressed with the ones for this year... she's sat and given the eye to the box that's in her snug space by the woodburner. As she looks like an Andrex puppy even baby chicks will be none too scared by that.
Heh, it'll be months before I'm getting any eggs out of these two little birds... I'll put my pasta machine back away again for a while.
I expect the Q contingent to be round tomorrow morning to have a look... the amateur offers for "chick sexing" he's been dishing out at random are unnecessary as they are both girls.
Hmmm, need names still...
