Yes some drying out time would be nice! I've had standing water in the yard and the chickens' run. I mucked out all the wet bedding but all the new bedding is now soaked and muddy too. My large compost bins are full so I've just piled it up in the run.
I'm sure they will have a blast in their new home. How old are they?
About 7 weeks, I think...lost count! Crossing my fingers still that they are all hens...three from sexed stock, and one straight run. All sweet chickens so far. Blondie, Brownie, Alice and Matilda the Hun. Matilda is the head cheese at present...a bit of a bully at times, but only to make sure everyone else stays in line! I'm wondering how I will be able to tell if my supposedly Ameraucana from The Stock Shop are truly Ameraucana, or Easter Eggers. No sign of cheek puffs yet...when do those develop?
I've got a few more chicks coming in April...Black Copper Marans, Columbian Wyandotte and Blue Orpingtons. I can't wait!
