A short one-minute video of the pullets. So far, they all seem to be girls, but only time will tell.
Took an Unusually Long Time
Finally after 29 weeks my March chicks started laying. Usually my birds reach their point of lay at about 18 weeks, this year was far from the usual. I blame the delay on weather, this year Phoenix experienced brutal heat. Most of July and August hit 110, with a few days reaching 118. Although my ladies have a mist system and a fan, this kind of weather takes it’s toll.
Cooler weather has arrived, that means happy birds… and that’s what fills the egg basket.
The Chicks Are All Grown Up
Here they are, almost at their point of lay. Expecting eggs in about 2-3 weeks. Two Easter Eggers and two Golden Laced Wyandottes.
