one of our britt hens became egg bound & was found dead in the nest box :(
but we have about 6 pullets getting some size to them to take her place
should be laying by Sept.
we also lost 7 buff pullets to the heat
they were up in one of our broody hen boxes & it looks to have gotten too hot in the coop for em
we didn't have that box last year so we didn't know
the strange things is the windows were open on the coop
i guess i'll add another window !
or maybe 2 more
25% of our jumbo 4 deck brooder is up & running
that # will climb to 50% once i build a couple more brooder doors
(should hold up to 200 peeps when finished)
thanks OZ & take care buddy
