Fancy Chicks Coming Soon

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.

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.
