Blog constipated, and chicks.

Tried to write a blog post, and I couldn't get Blogger to let me have the page to write on.  So, I will send it as an email and see how that works.  (It didn't, switched to "legacy", we shall see how THAT goes...)

At this point I have 5 chicks.  Edgar has two, and we have three we are calling the Tanker Trio, because she left the nest and wouldn't accept them.  Tanker because we are using our horse trough to keep them, until they can go out with the rest.

One of the chicks had damage to its neck. I wasn't sure it would make it, but I put ointment on it for a few days, and we kept an eye on all of them.  They were all pretty worn out and in rough shape, but seem to have come out of it fairly well. 

This is a picture of the quick care center we made up for them, a cake pan with cedar in it, in a fish tank.  Heat light overhead.  It was... Unique, but it worked.  Hopefully, I will have pictures with them a bit bigger soon.

It looks like you have done a really good job and I hope all three make it.

Good luck to the lovely little ones, the ones she accepted, and the ones she did not especially.

So far, so good!

I am hoping all goes well!
