Moving Day from Brooder to Coop

Today was the day, even though I had the calendar marked for next week… it was time to move the chicks from brooder to coop.  They are fully feathered at 6 weeks and not at all interested in hanging around a heat source anymore.  They are more interested in making a big mess, dumping their feed all over the place, flinging shavings into the drinker, and chasing each other around in their getting too small living space.

I banded the right leg on all the Silkies with 5 different brightly colored zip ties.  Finally I can tell them apart! That means today is the first day for Peaches, Sunkist, Tulip, Fern, and Rose to have their very own name.

Lift Off!
