I am going to be introducing some new blood to my barred rock flock. I ordered 15 pullets and 5 cockerals from Ideal Hatchery, delivery is scheduled for the week of November 26.

Lost 1, to the usual, it was weak from the beginning.

So 19 barred rocks and 5 reds still going and growing.

The birds seem to be very active, they are eating and drinking well.

Ideal hatchery in Tx
Ideal Hatchery produces some of the BEST dual purpose fowl or "Heritage" chickens compared to any of the other hatcheries I have seen....even their Buckeyes are above average quality!:)

My husband bought 8 chicks that were born New Years Day. We have them under a light and they seem fine. How long before we can move them into the coop?

Thanks,

is anyone in the coop already? if so wait till the chicks are 8 weeks old

if these are your 1st birds then you might be able to move them into the coop sooner but they will still need a heatlamp, they will not be able to keep warm without one.

good luck
