Its Chick Day!!!
And what better way to wake up than to pretty blue skies and handsome goat boys.
The sun is out and there are pretty daffodils in bloom. Okay, so one daffodil is what I have. How funny is that?
The tulips are just bursting to open up.
The hyacinths are making everyone happy.
A few days ago I began to get the supplies all together for the little, fuzzy chicks that were headed my way.
But the more I looked at the brooder that I had, the more I began to think that it just wasnt going to be big enough.
So, I looked to see what else I had around the farm that I could use.
Bingo. My favorite seat to hang out with the goats. Otherwise known as a stock tank turned upside down.
We got our boots on.
Did some heavy thinking to get a plan in place.
And began to move that big ol stock tank.
J and I got it flipped over and then headed down the hill with it.
The goat boys were very curious about what was going on. And yet they seemed just fine being curious from a distance.
J and G swept off all the mud and dirt.
J and I carried it inside and G poured in the pine shavings.
He got them all spread out just so.
And then we looked at the handiwork the three of us just managed to pull off.
The heat lamp is all aglow...just waiting for those little, fuzzy chick babies....
