We lost 3 chicks. Two over night on Saturday, and one last night. Not sure why, it just happens sometimes.
Yesterday morning I woke up to pouring rain. I went out (at 5:30am!), to check on the chicks, since I wasnt really sure how well the shelter would protect against the rain. It was not so great, and they were in a bit of a low spot. Several of them were fairly damp. I reworked their shelter. I put an upside mud catching mat on the bottom of their pen, so it lifted them above the wetness, moved their light in a bit, and pulled the tarp all the way over the pen. They were warm and cozy in no time!
