I put the chicks outside this morning as soon as the sun dried the grass and the morning began to warm up. These are the chicks hatched from eggs from Bamachicken and Jimmy47. They are turning out to be really lovely colors. They have also been kicked out of the upstairs plastic tote brooder. They are graduating to the brooder on the side porch with a heat lamp at night. These chicks were hatched on April 16, 2008. They are eight days old. Their brooder should be 85 degrees. The sun is very hot out there and they are doing fine laying in the heat in a bed of grass. When they come back in they will go under heat lamps. Right now they are enjoying the grass and the sun and the bugs and the fresh air. I have to clean up, sanitize and get ready for the batches set to hatch. Here are photos of the geese and the baby goats .
