Hatch Day

The chicks have started to hatch. Shown here are the first 5 in their brooder box. I use a recycled lawn mower box from a hardware store for their brooder box. When it gets too dirty I go and get another one. The lamp is a heat only lamp as I found with a light emitting heat lamp the chicks don't sleep well at night. I got this lamp from Bell South. I use recycled newspaper covered in office paper shreddings for their bedding. I put this on the compost heap when I change their bedding as it is rich in manure. For the first 24 - 36 hours they mostly sleep and do not need any food or water as they live off the egg yolk that they reabsorb just before hatching out. I will give them chick starter food and a water container tonight.

Hi Jennifer, My first lot of Australorp chicks are 6 weeks old. They are doing well, although I think I have a large number of roosters! Natalie

Organic home grown garlic (two full bulbs) plant each individual clove near a fence and the chooks will graze on the shoots thus helping to worm them.

So sweet of this that one and half month was over to the breaking of the eggs of chicken to hatching the small chicks. With the complication of the black in the chick’s body to touch the soft and very smooth body to carry the chicks.
