Chicks Update

March 15, 2010

Chick on the water!

2 1/2 week old chicks (Australops and Australorp/Easter Egger cross)

Our chicks are getting so big.  They have been getting real feathers since their 5th or 6th day.  They stink up the whole basement soon after their bedding is changed and we really need to get that coop built!

I’ve started another batch of eggs, so we can get a few more for ourselves (Ameraucanas and Silver-Laced Wyandottes this time) but so my friend can also have lots more of the same varieties we hatched last time.  The new batch is due the day before Easter, so I’m sure we will have some hatching out on Easter day.  We didn’t plan to have Easter chicks, but it happened that way.
