Day 42 with the baby chicks. I was so excited yesterday evening to find one of the little girls sitting on the roost in the brooder cage. Now that is upward progress! This same girl was interested in mealy worms. She would take one from Grandson’s hand, but then would just drop it. This behavior is in such contrast to our first batch of biddies, who were scarfing up those dried mealy worms from about four weeks of age.
Still, a poor start is not at all an indication of how things might turn out in the end.
Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin… ~Zechariah 4:10 NLT
