WANT TO RAISE BABY CHICKS TEMPORARILY?

Did you know?
YOU can buy a few chicks at the current chick sales at local Tractor Supply or Southern States stores then raise them a few weeks for fun then donate them to Winterpast Farm. All you need is a cardboard box or big plastic storage box and a clamp light. Easy and fun. The chicks develop very quickly the first few weeks…then you can hand them off to Farmer Mary.
One more idea for family fun..from Winterpast Farm.

THE BIG SNOW

The animals at Winterpast Farm had a special snow day breakfast this morning. Fresh pine! Several large branches fell out of the huge pine tree right in front of Farmer Mary’s house. None on the roof :)
The goats and sheep and donkeys nibbled all day and smaller branches were given to the bunnies and guinea pigs.
The power went off around midnight until around 5pm so Farmer Mary has been adding extra layers of towels and tarps to the bunny and guinea pig cages in the wellhouse since the space heater was off. Baby lamb CHARLOTTE ROSE didn’t like the dark or the cold or the cold bottles of formula while the electricity was off.
Farmer Mary is THANKFUL to finally have lights back on, the dryer running, warm water to mix up lamb formula, the whole house woodstove running, water (the well motor runs on electricity) and a hot bath!
