Howdy from North Texas! So we are just 8 days away from closing and just over 3 weeks until we move into our new place in Justin. I have been collecting scrap wood and piece parts to put together a couple brooders until we are in the new spot. We picked up 11 chicks over the weekend as well--- I know what 10 of them are breed wise; all pullets too-- I'll need some help identifying the last grey/yellow chick. It's the only pullet with a name-- Mildred. She was the only chick of her kind and the lady at the store wasn't exactly sure. All she could tell me was that she was for sure a pullet. The first brooder I made several changes to right off the bat. Will do the same thing with the second one we just slapped together. More than twice as large so the girls have a bit more space the last week or so before moving. Once we are moved in I will build a run and coop for all the girls including the 2 Barred Rocks that come with the house. I hope you guys enjoy the pics! 2-3 day old chicks purchased 3/11/17: 3 Gold Sex Link 3 Black Sex Link 2 Barred Rock 2 Buff Orphingtons 1 Grey with Yellow face & Neck(help with breed) My niece, nephew and daughter right when we got home from the store with the chicks. Brooder propped up---You can see the water setup I put together-- they love it and it keeps the water from getting dirty. First iteration before I made a hinged top with hardware cloth etc-- the chicks are happy and warm! Brooder closed with the new hinged top. Mildred-- the unknown breed. Any ideas???? Mildred is a cutie eh? Buff Orphington pullet Barred Rock pullet Black Sex Link pullet Black Sex Link Gold Sex Link pullet My 2 year old enjoying her baby chicks. She LOVES them!
