What is really working and, what is not?
I am wondering what is working well for all of you this chick/lambing/kidding etc. season. And what you have tried so far that did not work as well or at all.
I placed a large bantam and duck order and quickly realized that the set up I had planned was not ideal or even workable. A week and four different setups later, things have calmed down. The bantams, for example, are now being brooded in the kitchen in a very large wooden box with hay in the bottom. One heat lamp is suspended 30 inches above the center. Three small waterers are on the bottom piece of a plant starter and several small feeders (the kind you put a mason jar on but I am using as is) are in three corners. This setup seems perfect. The bantams are all happy, getting their little wing feathers and I am beginning to be able to tell what they may be.
