    boy chicks sure do get big in a few months dont they wow. My DH and I were just talking about when we put our first batch outside and they were like 3 months old, and i was like no way. Dont know why i am worried about this next lot and waiting until they are at least that old and put them out with the older chickens.
    Dang they get so big so fast lol

    My New Years Hatch is all 6 months old and most are laying. My April hatch is 10 weeks old and will be in the big coop the 2nd week of August. Time flies... Then I'll be gearing up for another New Years Hatch come December.
