    Awesome, thanks for sharing!! Mine are about 3 weeks now, and I love to see the "timeline" I have to look forward too.
    I just bought nipples to make some waterers like the bucket one you have.. when did you introduce it to them, and how?

    I introduced it to them a few weeks ago when they were inside but it was too messy so they just got it again last week. Just put it above their head a little and they will find it, or at least mine did. I leave the top open so that rain will fill it.

    Thanks for the pictures! [​IMG] My chicks are 4 weeks old now. It's fun to see what they'll look like in a few more weeks! They grow entirely too fast!

    So when is it safe to put them outside?? should you wait till they are completely feathered out?
