    Our hatch of Black Copper Marans and Buff Orpingtons and their crosses is finished. 20 out of 21 hatched. There are 5 that look like pure BCM. The rest are crosses.

    Enjoy our brooder cam for the next few weeks.

    Thanks. The chicks are doing great.

    One poor chick has a bloody toe and the others won't leave it alone. I had to think quick it keep it from being hurt more. I wanted to make a cage that would fit in our brooder and hold some water and food. I taped together 4 strawberry cages and put a plastic food tray under it. I cut down a Dixie cup for and wired it to the cage side. The tray holds the food. I wired the cage to the brooder so the other chicks would not turn it over.

    The chick is not really happy, but it is not getting pecked. You can see it in use on our webcam. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/avhs-chickens
