In the Brooder
- Mar 11, 2018
Hi, everyone! My name is Kristen and I’m fairly new to raising chickens. I bought 18 chicks back in August and have quite successfully raised them to laying age. I lost 2 babies in the beginning from the heat, but quickly found that placing a fan close to their hutch kept the air circulating quite nicely for them. I have 3 Asian Blues, 4 ISA Browns, 1 Black Rock, and 8 Cornish Rocks. 4 of my rocks are roosters, but seem to tolerate each other well. I haven’t had any nasty fights. So far, everything has been going well and we have been enjoying the eggs that my girls are finally providing. The only unpleasant issue is our coop situation. But we are working on getting a better set up so they are cleaner and more comfortable. I look forward to learning more about my babies and sharing my experiences!
