Chick pics - day 4

Thought you might like to see some pics of the chicks in their shed brooder.

The brooder is round, so there are no corners for them to get trapped in.  We've got some special matting in the bottom,  with a layer of Aubiose which traps the poo and helps stop them getting smelly.We've got both a heat lamp AND an electric hen (EH) at the moment,  we'll move to just using the EH when the weather improves.     

The heat lamp is obscuring most of the chicks... here's a close-up of them.

And here are some of the chappies peeping out from the Electric Hen

Honestly, could they be any more cute?
