Just ordered fancy ornamental chicks, shipped from Connecticut (My Pet Chicken) on the 25th of October. Mille Fleur d’Uccle Bantams & Black Feather Footed Silkie Bantams.
Future plans to breed the black Silkies, hopefully at least one in the shipment is nice quality. Am I asking too much for her to be willing to hatch eggs too? You never know… but that’s what makes it fun.
October/November is the perfect time to raise baby chicks in Phoenix, Arizona. The temperatures stay between 80 & 90 degrees, and the nights around 65. Usually just radiant heat is needed in the brooder.
