And still they keep growing

chick Apr 13

We are still on a learning curve when it comes to hatching and raising our own chicks. This week we started to feed them growers pellets which we mix with the chick feed. Over the next few days we will gradually increase the pellets until we have weaned them off the chick feed. The chicks are growing remarkably quickly. We took this photo yesterday. They must be about 5 times bigger than they were when they hatched 5 weeks ago.

A friend is taking 3 of them and we will keep the others. He may have to take them a bit earlier than expected.
