Huddled Chickens (67k image) The weather was nice on Saturday, so we let the baby chickens out to enjoy the sun. Their home for the last four weeks (since they were hatched) has been a wooden box under our kitchen table, with a shaved wood floor and a plastic chicken wire ceiling, with an infrared light bulb for a sun. They seemed to enjoy their time outdoors, and I’d guess they’d look forward to the roomy confines of their future home, the coop we built, if they knew about it. At four weeks, some are as big as jays, and all are larger than the average robin. In two weeks, they’ll live outdoors permanently. In this picture, they’re crowded in the corner because they’re camera shy.

Sleeping Critters (54k image)As the sun went down, they settled into a nap. One of our cats did too, suspended by the plastic wire roof right overhead. He was, no doubt, dreaming of a big chicken pie.

    it was good but i would like to know more about how chickens are raised. such as should we help it crack out of its egg if it is struggling or how long do we leave under light before we should start feeding it and also how long it takes to hatch.

    overall i was fairly satisfying
    thank you

    On friday april 4,we noticed we had 1 more chick trying to hatch……..all of the sudden the mother of the chick started to peck at the baby chiick in the egg.We were not sure what was wrong so we help the chick out of the egg.But then as it came out of the egg we noticed it was bleeding and somthing was cut and it had its stomach coming out…..and that is why the mother was peckin gat it…becuase she knew somthing was wrong with it.

    Our little bantam hen is mothering a brood of 16 right now! Somehow she has bluffed 3 barn cats and a very large German Shepard, who refere to her as “the monster” and warn everyone to stay far, far away!!We truly enjoy watching them out in the sunshine.
