Poultry Update

We've been lucky to have a number of great weather days.  I know many people have been living with crazy single digit  and teen conditions, but here it's been pleasant and warm.  

So the chicks have been able to get out and stretch their legs for about an hour every day.  

I think it is really helping them to grow.  

And we are learning more too.  

For example, we were keeping it too warm in the coop and they weren't producing adult feathers.  I think it would make processing easier, but apparently that won't help J in the showing stage.  So we turned off the heat lamps.  

Now we don't have nearly neked chickens.  That's a good thing.  23 still growing strong.
