|I won't enlarge this one for you, just trust me... it's nasty!|
Kern and I took the brooder outside to clean it out, and it was such a beautiful day, we put the babies on a patch of clover while we did that.
|Happy, happy babies!|
|Clover...or water... tough decision!|
I found some chickweed and put it in their water. They were crazy about it! I even got a little video! We let them play for about 15-20 minutes, then we got them back inside under the heating element. With a clean, new brooder, they happily preened for the next hour before taking a nap.
Tomorrow should be another warm(ish) day with a pretty good chance of rain. If there is a clear patch in the afternoon, we might take them out to play in the puddles and to scratch around in the mud. I'll be sure to take pics.
