THAT is exactly where my discussion has stemmed from with Moyers. Discussing larger production and discussing ship and transit times and I mentioned to John how I understand a yolk can sustain a chick for 72 hours, however, it’s undeniable that my home-hatched chicks are eating before that.That's really interesting -- and an argument in favor of hatching eggs, rather than shipping in chicks, who may not have any opportunity to eat within the first 48 or 72 hours.
so he told me about this first 72 hours learning how to eat and crop filling and reducing And said hatching your own is always better and this is why large commercial farms have hatcheries within an hour of them providing the chicks.
it’s also why a natural light cycle from the beginning can reduce growth rates and why the label rouge and humane systems here call for a natural light cycle after the first four days of a chicks life I guess.
also saw this.... looks perfect for a brooder!
