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.
