Meet my two newest ladies. A friend of mine got them from Homestead Gardens and couldn't keep them so they have come to live with me. When he got them he didn't ask how old they were so I am guestimating them at around 3 weeks. Any seasoned chick raisers have a better idea? I also want to know when they can start living outside at night. I live in Maryland about 25 minutes south of Annapolis and November can be pretty nippy here. It has already gotten down into the 30s at night. I am putting them out during the day, bringing them in at night and keeping them in the "basement" (aka the cellar we flatter by calling it a basement). I raised 5 other chicks from when they were about 2-3 weeks old this summer, but they could stay outside all the time because it was always warm. Fall/winter is a whole new beast for me. I appreciate the help guys! This what they looked like a week ago October 30th And these are from tonight November 5th.
