Here are some of my 30 3-week old babies enjoying their daily treat of a bucket of mulch and some pulled weeds.
They are outside now full time, heat lamp was off 2 nights ago and last night the heating pad was turned off. We are in Hawaii and daytime temps are in the 80's and nighttime might go down to 70 on a cool night. I checked them and no loud peeping . They were all spread out sleeping under the covered part but not all huddled up together like they were cold.
They have caught a gecko on their own and watching them play football with it was hilarious!
They will be moving to their big girl area in a few days. We need to make sure the deer netting is covering any escape routes.
With these cuties I now have 54!! Chicken math got me! I picked up 12 hens and a rooster yesterday that a lady didn't want to deal with anymore. She was unsure of their age, maybe 3 or older. I got a big beautiful brown egg from one of them today!
I have 3 flocks now, all in their own areas. They can see each other, but not crossing into each others territories.
