The chicks have graduated and are now out in the barn with the big birds! They are doing really well and it is fun to see them so full of life and vitality enjoying their new quarters.
I finished a special home-made water system for them that runs all the time from a pond up the hill. The water flows through a trough then back out the barn, so it will stay thawed all the time without needing a heater. We run a similar system for the cows and it has stayed running even on the coldest nights. This picture shows the chicks on this side of the fence and the laying hens on the other. The white pvc behind the chicks is the waterer.
