Chicks

The chicks have arrived! They all look vigorous and healthy. Fourteen days is the approximate time they will be in the brooder. The brooder is approx. 5x5. A 4x3 hover with lights provides adequate heat (90-95 degrees). The chicks can regulate their temperature by moving toward or away from the lights.

Feel free to post comments and questions.

Heard you have all them birds all sold. What happens if you have any casualties?

Tricia Ann said you'd stop posting if you didn't get any comments, so I racked my brain to come up with this one!

Laura,

I have at least 15 extra birds. Mom and Dad are buying the extras.

Thank you for the comment. I'm not very good about commenting on other peoples blogs. :/

Hope to see y'all soon!
