My sister was weeding the garden when she came across two baby rabbits. We got to keep them for part of the day, and then let them go back into the garden. They are so tiny and cute!!!! They loved going under cloths to “burrow.”
Lsat night we decided to try to leave the chicks in a cage outside and lock them up at night, I told my mom that I didn’t think it was a good idea, but no she didn’t listen. When we woke up this morning we saw that the gate to the cage was open,( it wouldn’t lock so we just put a wooden board it front of the door to keep it closed) and the door to the hutch part was open, (we had locked it that night) shavings were on the ground, and no chicks. We tried to find them even if they were dead, no luck. We went back to the cage and noticed paw prints of a dog on the board that was keeping the door closed. So now we are trying to find the dog that did it, which will be hard knowing that almost everyone in our neighborhood has a dog.
We recently had a friend come over and give us ten, seven day old baby chicks! I was so excited! I will go step by step to explain what you need to get ready for chicks. You first need a Rubber Maid tub and wood shavings. Then, get some feeders and waterer and starter chick feed. Make sure your chicks have plenty of water and food. You can collect these items from your local farm store. (all except the Rubber Maid tub, you can get that at a grocery store.) You should clean the chicks cage at least once a week, taking out the old shavings and putting in new ones. You should also rinse out the waterer. The chicks can be gently handled, we put old towels on our laps so when they poop, which they will, a lot, you will stay clean. If there are little children around wanting to hold the chicks make sure you help them and watch them carefully, so they don’t hurt the chicks.
I will keep posting about the chicks and try to put up pictures of them growing! 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
The little chickens are bantams, the light brown and white one is mine. The little Roster that my brother and my sister are holding in the pictures was very favored of my sister. She loved him, and still does, his name is Bugsy. One day a dog came in their cage and killed them. 😦 The ducks were mine I had two boys and a girl. (the one I’m holding in the picture is the girl.) We didn’t have a pond or anything so we had this small tub for them, then some of our friends needed ducks for they’re pond so I gave the ducks to them. One day at their farm, the ducks were in the cage with the chickens and during the night some animal killed all the chickens and ducks, I was so sad to hear this. But this spring we will get more chickens. 🙂 If you ever get Chickens you need them to have a strong cage. If you get ducks make sure they have a pool or pond, and a safe place from animals.
We had a friend who found a baby deer on the side of the road, and gave it to one of our other friends because she couldn’t take care of it. Then we got to go over to her house and pet the deer. Her name is Precious. She is a lot bigger now than she is in the picture, and she acts like a kid, she like to chase you and bite your clothes and hair. She also loves cookies!
