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.
yup they don't all make itLost 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.
is anyone in the coop already? if so wait till the chicks are 8 weeks oldMy 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?
