Moving day for the chicks!

Today was moving day for the 7 week old chicks.  They moved from the brooder to the outdoor “Teen Hangout”.  This is a sectioned off area of the run just for the chicks until they begin to lay.  I do not put them in with the layers before they begin to lay because the layer feed has too much calcium for them.

Initially they found the move a bit unnerving, but they are now enjoying exploring the big, amazing world.

Can you believe that just 7 weeks ago these guys looked like this…

I will only be keeping 11 of the chicks.  In the end of January/beginning of February I will have some beautiful 12 week old pullets to sell.  Check back then (or email me) if you are interested.
