Draw Cold Water, It's Bath Time
Weaned Chicks Get a Bath!
While feeding the weaned Stafford chicks this morning, one of the chicks got in the dish or cous cous with poppy seeds and fluttered around as if he was trying to take a bath! Taking that as a clue, I provided an outside bath with cold water as they prefer very cold water for their bath!
I also placed a perch right in front of the bath so that they could land and take a look before jumping in. After one jumped in the water, the rest could not wait to take a turn in the cold water! I changed the bath water several times till all had a good bath! I will continue to offer them a bath once a week but it will not be on Saturday night! LOL
