It's almost time for a delivery of baby chicks. We will get a delivery early next week. It's been months since we had any chicks in the brooders, so it's time to get ready!
When Claire was 3, we bought a set of garden tools for her. Kid size shovel, rake and hoe.
That purple, short handled hoe is the perfect size for this job. With a short swing and small head it easily breaks up what is in the bottom.
A hardware cloth lid, a spot to clamp the heat lamp, a wire to hang the feeder and a hook for the water.
A couple wheelbarrows of sawdust and we are ready!
