Hot Chicks

Hot Chicks

Even though it’s summer, chicks require supplemental heat to keep their little bodies warm enough the first few weeks of life. We use heat lamps in their brooder pen and waterers which are designed to prevent chicks from falling in and getting wet. However…the chick in the picture managed to get most of his body into the small water trough and was found soaking and cold. I brought him into the house to quickly heat him up and dry him out while Quinn made jokes about premature marinading…

This chick is safely back home in his brooder with the other 99 chicks.
