Spring Chick


A little chick came out to eat. Didn’t go very far from mother hen. We saw one yesterday afternoon – just didn’t get a photo. Temperature is expected to be in the 20’s all night tonight. I searched online and feel assured that the chicks should be fine. We hope to get them out Monday afternoon to clean out the brooder. The hen on the right is still sitting on four eggs. Not sure what is up with that. I thought she started sitting at the same time. Hopefully, the eggs aren’t duds and something happens soon.

Our head rooster is actually acting a little protective. He’s been sticking by the coop and was actually sitting up next to the brooder for a while yesterday morning. We plan to kill the two extra roosters. We thick there could be a chance that they would harm the chicks.
