We’re now the proud house sitters of six fuzzy little chicks. Louise hatched her little family in the henhouse alongside the other hens. It soon became apparent that this was not suitable for little chicks as they kept falling onto the henhouse floor. As soon as we picked one up another would fall.
So we evicted the dog, and went about making a makeshift nursery in the dogs house. We put in some straw flooring and lined the walls to keep out the cold. Louise and her chicks were excited about their new house and lived there happily for the next three months.
