This Week’s Feature Article
Update on the Silkie chicks. Lost Henny, one of the white chicks to unknown causes. Too bad because I was really needing two white pullets. Now I’m down to one and I’m 99% sure that one is a rooster. Just goes to show, no matter how good we think we are at sexing chicks, we can so easily stand corrected, especially when it comes to Silkies!
These chicks will be in the only brooder I have until they are 7-8-wks. Either I get another brooder, be creative in dividing the current one, or wait until late Fall to get those white babies. Chicken keeping, every day offers something new to think about… and it’s all fun.
