February 22, 2014 - 1 Week Old

The little girls are terrified of me when I first go into the brooder. The 4x6 area has a chair in one end where I sit. I read that calling out to them before I get to the brooder helps prepare them--not so much. They begin in a huddle in one corner and slowly relax. They are relaxing sooner each day--usually it's a Barred Rock who breaks formation first and the others follow.

The feeder is in a large feed pan to help contain the feed they love to scratch out onto the floor. The black pan keeps the feed from sifting down through the shavings. That attracts rodents later when I use brooder shavings in the adult bird roosting pit when the babies are grown up.

February 13, 2014 - Babies

We'll have a mixed color flock this year. Hopefully these babies will begin laying by early July when the older birds will find new homes--I already have someone in line waiting for the adults!

This year's kids are: 1 White Leghorn, 1 Danish Brown Leghorn, 1 Black Star (Black Sex Link), 2 Buff Orpingtons, 2 Barred Plymouth Rocks, 1 Rhode Island Red, 1 Golden Comet (Gold Sex Link).
