Our chicks are growing fast. They have outgrown their small brooder box.
So Farmer Rick built them a new chicken tractor. This will be a nice safe place for them to grow until they are big enough to join our other chickens.
Farmer Rick also started a new batch in the incubator. 17 eggs set to hatch on the 4th of July weekend!
These again will be mixed breed chicks from our brown egg laying hens and our blue maran rooster. I sold a couple of chicks out of the first hatch. A new back yard flock has been started! Of course I bet she will want a few more once she falls in love with them.
