It was a nice day today and the brooder was a bit stinky. So, up came the Eglu onto the grass, cleaned and shiny and out went the chicks for a sensory overload!
The problem then was, 'how do we get them out?'. They need to go back in the brooder for the night as it's still a bit too cold out there. Of course, I have to crawl into the run and catch them or drive them into the Eglu where they can be cornered. So, there are NO photo's of this, I will never be a good limbo dancer, and at least I'm not so overweight that I couldn't get through the door! Poor things immediatly went under the hot plate for a rest. Not sure if it was the trauma or the exciting afternoon.
In other news, we have just put the next lot of eggs in the incubator which includes Silver Laced Wyandottes, Araucana, Vorwerk, Welsummers, Legbars and Buff Plymouth Rock x Light Sussex's.
What a lovely selection of colours, hopefully by next year, I will have the most interesting boxes of eggs for sale in Shropshire.
