Three Days Old and Doing Well: Eating, Drinking, Peeing, Pooping and Sleeping

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Everyone is in love with these tiny fluff balls. The kids are testing and be treated to the sweet peeps of these tiny beings while they work. When they take a break or finish for the day, they take turns visiting the babies.

First Born is the leader of the group. It dried off and was placed in its new home. Barbara played Mother Hen and tapped her finger on the food plate to show her baby how to eat. It got the idea straight away. When #2 was placed with her, she took the new chick to the plate and showed it how to eat and drink. # 3 and #4 followed right behind.

#2 is the biggest chick. It eats a lot and sleeps under the Brooder with the others.

All are healthy and growing quickly. They love cuddling under the Brooder and keeping warm.
