Here are the first chicks of the season hatching out in their incubator. We are having quite good hatch rates and healthy chicks. Anyone who wants some eight week old pullets are welcome to put their orders in now as we have chicks on the ground that can now grow up. The chicks will spend the first 10 days to 2 weeks of their life under heat in our utility room. Then when they are old enough to be able to self regulate their body temperature they will be moved up to the shed where they will remain on heat at night until 4 weeks old when they will come back down to the house yard into a chicken coop with a cover. They will have a full set of juvenile feathers by then.
