Friday chick update.

Well, despite all my fears and worries, things seem to be going ok in the brooder.

Queenie is showing she's a devoted mother type, and the chicks are eating their chick crumbs, and drinking their water nicely.

They seem to be growing quite quickly already and fluffing up well.

Here's a little film made this morning of the chicks at the watering hole - the whole family taking a break!



Enjoy!

Drat. I can't get the video to load. My cursor seems to be malfunctioning. I'll try later.

Way to go, Mr. Chicken Man, keeping them alive!

Cheers John - another update coming today with some pictures.
