Willow, Tara, Merrill, and Henrietta (whose full name is Henrietta the Official Hen of www.gamecouch.com thanks to a friend of ours).

We currently have the main water dish and a smaller temporary set up of an overturned tupperware lid for filled with water. The chicks were having trouble staying steady on their feet and found the overturned lid easier to drink out of than the larger dish. Once they stop being quite so clumsy that will be removed.
Our cats are rather confused by all the peeps and chirps coming from the closed off guest room that is housing the brooder box. Hopefully they will not try running in there one of the times that we enter the room. The baby chicks are not cat toys.
In case you were wondering, the chicks are currently living on The Onion newspaper. We want our chicks well read and enjoying the fun parts of life.
