Here are my almost 3 week old chicks. I have been hiding for a while, but thought I would post pics of my girls, hopefully all girls! This is my second brooder, they quickly outgrew their first. I have 12 total and I am hoping for lots of eggs come July! They hatched around 2/11, so they are pushing 3 weeks.

Thanks to all. I live in Eastern North Carolina near the coast. The chicks are red pullets, but not sure of exact breed yet. I'm leaning towards either New Hampshire Reds, or Production Reds. I wanted hens that would lay large brown eggs and be productive. My math was a little fuzzy last night, as they are actually going on 4 weeks this coming Monday. I had them in a large plastic tote, but they quickly outgrew that and had to upgrade to this cage. It is an old ferret cage that where I work no longer wanted, so I asked for it and modified slightly with plywood bottom and sides.

Love it when things can be repurposed. Ferret cage works perfect the way you modified it. Chicks grow up so fast. Wish they'd stay little just a wee longer. :D
