Damn, when I went out this morning I discovered that the heat lamp in the Black Rocks had failed. I don't know if it's the bulb or the lamp - only bought it last week. I set up another lamp but when I went in this afternoon, two chicks were obviously on the way out. I dispatched the worst one and Rebecca (Florence Nightingale reincarnated) has taken the other away to nurse it. It's good of her because it will almost certainly die.

The rest seem fine; I suspect it's just weeded out the weakest chicks, although both were a good size. I'm bl88dy cross, I'll tell you.
