All 41 of my 12-week-old chicks are alive and well yet (much to my surprise with the early threat of the foxes & hawks nearby...which are turning out to be a non-problem so far.) They are all out free-ranging from about 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m daily...and absolutely loving their freedom. It's amazing to watch their "personalities" come out! Do chickens eat mosquitoes or do mosquitoes bite chickens?? Also, I swear some of the hens get sunburn occasionally - by evening their faces look redder. Is that possible??
