84 degrees here today. Way too hot!!
Will work for hens. I can't even keep bluegill like we like to keep our game hens in small numbers. I speak from experience rather that stopping at the wall imposed by smaller social groups where mine cannot be kept any better than yours. Done properly damage minimal.
Try it sometime and you will learn something.
Take one out for a few weeks and then put her back. I would think tbe for one reason or another like being injured or broody that you might remove a hen for awhile and then put her back. Your telling me they just go about their business while you drop in a "new hen"
You may need that warm glass of milk tonight to help you relax cause nobody said one can only keep birds a certain way. Depends on your acceptable level of damage and loss.
Besides the blue what are the others?
so far so good. I have a long time before I need to separate these young ones.
I have them running free range now with the older ones. I felt bad keeping them penned up. Plus I got rid of that problem dog, so I am not so worried about them getting eaten. I still gather them up before nightfall.
Haha... once they hatch from the eggs I had no idea. This group is all SDMs eggs. He sent me so many varieties I cant keep track. Rubles, Sweaters, Kelso crosses... etc. All are really good looking... The darker miner (not shown in this pic) is a little small, and one other hatch type is a very small runt, but all the rest seem to be top notch.
Ahh ok. You'll be able to tell soon enough as they age.
Dark Miner is small but bold! Check him out in the middle of the big boys feeding frenzy.
Super friendly too. Lets me handle him with no fear.
