    The possibilities are endless. However my breeding pens are are 4 big covered runs off the back of the hay shed . They all get to free range during the day.
    I'm sure you've been looking at the kids cubby in a whole new light lately Ben.[​IMG]

    Its not my rooster or at my house so no access to scales that's why I was trying to guesstimate. :)

    In a positive though spoke to the wife today and she was a bit grossed that their toes may start falling off so she wasn't phased by the withholding time so ill take it in and pass the job to her to nag about :). Perfect!!

    same here, especially now going into summer. Crunchy grass hahahaha, yep, know alllll about it,. I get jealous when I see everyone else's green pastures for their chooks and then I feel guilty too. So I have dug up a lot of my lawn and pout it in the chook run but it only lasts a few weeks and they mince it all up to nothing :(

    Ooh, thanks for this info, I had wondered the same thing. I just whacked a desk lamp in a box and put a teddy in there so they could get close to the globe for warmth. I didn't put the temp/humidity monitor in there either. I did change to a halogen globe though because they put out so much heat and I leave it on 24/7. I did have a lid on the box (cardboard+a towel) to keep the warmth in, but today I left the lid half open so the ducklings can get some natural light (but not direct sunlight).

    After reading all your posts about the meticulous care you take, I am amazed mine are alive at all!
