Chicks sleeping except for Mr. Curious, the little guy in the middle!
I finally had time yesterday to take pictures of the chicks for you.
It would appear that we are finally getting everything under control after the not so great start that we had. If you don't know what I am talking about, then you need to read the previous post.
We are implementing two new components to our "nursery" this year. In the "BIG Brooder" we are using an "Ohio Brooder" which I will explain in an upcoming post and we are also installing an automatic watering system in the brooder.
Although the weekend was a tough one concerning the chicks, it also had its bright spots as well. Here are two of the bright spots.
Colton and Skyler's grandparents came for a visit so they could see Skyler's all-school play and look what they brought and then left behind for us! I highly recommend these! They are yummy and addictive! I think they get them at COSCO.
I grew up in a small Western Nebraska town, Mitchell. My stepfather was a piano tuner and my mother was a legal secretary. I feel like I grew up under normal circumstances, what ever normal is!
I have lived several places and have held many different occupations from my first job, working at a doggie grooming salon, to fast food joints, waitressing at a country club to family diners, ski lift operator, administrative assistant, restaurant manager, piano tuner, bank teller, para for SPED kids in junior high school, construction worker, to my husband's hired hand.
My husband and I married in 1996 and have four boys. Nick who is currently stationed at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico, serving our country in the United States Airforce, Colton who is currently attending South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, Chris who lives in Kearney and works for Charter Communications and finally Skyler who is a senior at Morrill High School. We own and operate our own family run business, Open A Bar 2 Ranch, LLC which is an all natural beef operation and a pastured poultry operation.
