Out of the Brooder

Those tiny little chicks I bought at Tractor Supply are already teenagers.  They have their big girl feathers so have been moved out of the breeder box into the barn with our other layers.  They still kind of hang together, like monkeys.   They should start laying this Summer, around July.  They’re the Easter Egger breed, Americaunas, so their eggs will be large and colorful.  The brooder is empty again, time to score some turkeys!
