Yesterday. When I was a young boy, I barely remember seeing my grandmother Rowan outdoors, because she was blind for about the last 20 years of her 93 years on earth.
We incubated and hatched our first chickens in mid April 2014, and hatched a second batch the end of May.
Maybe it could be used that way, but it is a portable chicken house.
We have purchased baby chicks several years, but this year we hatched some chicks in an incubator, a first for us.
This post shows homemade watering devices for both chickens and dogs.
At 51 days of age I moved our chicks into the hen house. The older hens were put in portable pens for the summer months.
At two weeks of age all 15 chicks have survived. Last year we ordered seven and four were dead on arrival.
Chicks at 24 days of age Chicks at nine days of age – April 9, 2013 These baby chicks were received April 3, 2013.
Today is the first day since late summer/early fall that all eight hens laid eggs. Six hens are one-year old and two are two years old. The golf ball was not laid today.
