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.

Tonight they are enjoying a special dinner of romaine, tomatoes, hard boiled eggs, and a tiny bit of cheese. 🙂

Tour TBN’s Chicken Keeping Set-up

When raising chickens, discovering what works and what doesn’t is dictated entirely by individual circumstance. Chicken keepers have to consider space limitations, climate, purpose, and convenience. Most of us learn by trial and error, but the way I see it, that’s half the fun of raising chickens!
Here’s our set-up in the desert southwest. Suitable for mild winters, and temperatures reaching 115+ in summer.

Cochin Chicks Trading Fluff for Feathers

Looks like another 2 weeks and the Cochin chicks will be ready to leave the brooder! They will be in a coop in plain sight of the existing flock for about 3 months, then set free to join the others. Sounds simple, unfortunately it’s not. We’ll see, my Silkies are very docile and have always accepted new birds with little confrontation. Fingers crossed!
