Chicks & A Root Cellar

We are a couple of weeks away from ordering our first ever Chicks!!!!!

We are both excited and nervous. Excited to hold them and hear their adorable sounds. Nervous, because we are the parents. We have to not only keep them warm, but safe from predators!

We had trespassers in the Root Cellar. It has sat “Vacant” of canned goods, but not of pests like squirrels and rats that built nests and hauled in tons of acorns.

We started sweeping out the debris, then we hosed down the whole building. We put cement on the holes that the pests chewed through in the ceiling and where the wall and ceiling met. Then installed installation to discourage anything from wanting free room and board! 🙂 The big heavy door fell off it’s hinges and still needs repair. As you can tell, the Chick Nursery still needs TLC, and we can not wait to show them to you when they arrive! We are in the midst of cleaning and repairing the Chicken Coop for them to live in as they mature.

We have started gathering baby things! Heat Lamps-Waterer and Feeders…And A Small Funny Moment-I really wanted to set up Video Cam’s and Baby Monitors so I could keep a constant eye on the little feathery baby chicks :)Jen
