The Chance You Take When Raising Chicks in the Winter
Several things I learned through this:
1. Always listen to your mother! (As she asked if I should put some in another bin, so they'd have be more room. I thought b/c it was just temporary, I'd be fine & keep them warmer all together.)
2. Make sure there's enough space & ventilation!
3. And if the power goes out at night & you bring chicks inside, set an alarm to check on them in a few hours!
At least there's some chicks left, and I know they'll be true survivors if they make it through this cold snap we're having.
(Update: 15 chicks died, but 14 survived, 3 of which are roosters!)
