Here is what we found so far. Pip and Squeak. : ) Two little black Australorp chicks. We had a heckuva time getting Pip out of the nest. Had to move bales of hay and pry that broody hen over to grab him. Sounds brutal I know but he was getting dehydrated and hungry and she isn't leaving the nest anytime soon. Nor would he stand a chance with the barn cats and other hens. While retrieving him Moira found another peep so we grabbed it too. Looks like at least one more egg was cracking so will see what happens!
We have them in the bathroom for the time being in a big Rubbermaid tub. My brooder light wouldnt turn on so we have the heating pad under them and a shoplight over them and the temp. is staying up at 95 where it needs to be. Allen will pick up another light on his way home hopefully and we can figure out permanent housing. Which, lets be honest, will likely BE the bathroom for a while lol!
Hope to upload some more pics and news of the kids before long. Way overdue on that.
