Special delivery

Our first batch of chicks for the year arrived today, a mix of white meat birds, red meat birds (slower growing) and brown egg layers. I picked them up from the post office, where they had arrived from Missouri! We dipped each one’s beak in sugar water before putting them in the brooder. They are eating and drinking and staying warm
under 500 watts. Hear that noise? That’s my smart meter beaming massive money from my house to PG&E. Oh wait, that’s actually the sound of 85 chickies chirping.

  1. We just purchased two Brinsea brooders. They only use 18 watts which is great for our solar run house. I will tell you how they work out for us. It might be a good investment.
