post #141 of 141

I brooded my chicks this year with a heating pad.  They were fully integrated by 4 weeks.  That being said, they had more space, and I let my flock free range until a pair of hawks discovered my buffet.  So, I've spent the last few weeks shuffling the youngsters in and out of a tractor depending on the hawk issue.  The youngsters are 2 months old now, and spending 24/7 with the older flock.  You'll just have to try it and see how it works.

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.
