Our chicks have moved

Spread the love

Our first attempt at hatching chickens has so far been a success. We started with 9 eggs, 7 hatched. Of those we have 5 very similar boring white+black spotted, one brown we call “hooters/owly”, and one black we call “black hawk down” We after keeping them inside WAY to long (in the basement craft room) moved their stinky asses out to the coup. We have them caged in a medium dog crate with food and water. This lets them get used to the temp changes, introduces them to the other chickens while keeping them safe from them as well.

We will be keeping the chicks caged for a week, then let them rock and roll. fingers crossed that thinning out the guinea flock will make them less “angry” towards the others…
