For those of you who follow my sons blog, http://3gracinggarretj.blogspot.com/, you know that he and a buddy brought home some chicks the other day....Two of the little gals ended up with a problem that's not uncommon to chicks, but can kill them. Their little poo was collecting to their back end and stopping anymore from coming out .... that's not good, (neither was trying to clean them up)!! I called the feed store who said we probably could have prevented the problem by adding ground scratch to their feed...Sure wish they had mentioned that in the first place... I had a house full of guest and a chick that peeped at the top of her lungs all night long!! I even got up at 1:00 in the morning to clean her feathery little butt.....Man, did I ever have some tired company the nest morning!! :)
Oh well that's life on the farm......And to think my cousin complained about having to sleep with the lizard...but that another story.
