Time to leave the nest

26th March 2020
Windmill Nursery would like to say a huge thank you to Macy for doing such a brilliant job looking after our 10 chicks last week. Macy had to clean out the brooder everyday, top up their food and give them fresh water. A light kept them warm but Macy made sure they didn’t get too hot and turned it off if she noticed the chicks were staying away from it.
Over the week, our chicks grew so fast. They learnt to jump, flap their wings and make a very big mess. Macy was kept very busy! The chicks were now too big for their brooder - they needed more space and so it was time for them to go back to the farm. Living Eggs came to collect them and were very pleased with how strong and healthy they were. Well done and thank you again Macy!
