I’m sad to report our baby chicks are all dead. We’ve been keeping them in the basement in a large box. Our dog Gala has been curious about the chicks so we’ve kept the door closed to the basement to keep her away from the chicks. Someone (whose identity will remain undisclosed) forgot to close the basement door and Gala found her way to the baby chicks. They are no more. Lots of tears from my daughter. We decided we’ll get a new batch and start over. Derek is planning to make a dog-proof box this time.
