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.

Ephesians 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
