We took the chicks on a small outing to my garden on Thursday, 08/09/12. They had a fun time, however, we decided it was a bit too hot and humid so we cut it short so we would not stress them!
Well the chicks are growing very quickly. They are very curious and are even trying to use their wings a bit! We now have a screen over the top of their newly enlarged brooder. Their first week the temperature in their breeder needed to stay at 95 degrees. Starting on Monday we will keep the temperature at 90 degrees. We will decrease it by 5 degrees each week until they are ready to go outside at approximately five weeks!
This little chicks name is Toy, she is really a sweetie! This is the chick my daughter has been working with to tame.
Happy Gardening and Farming! We will keep updating the status of the chicks on their journey!
