We moved our older chicks to the chick house on the allotment last week, allowing us to move the younger chicks from the brooder box into the chick run in the back garden. The younger chicks are now about 3 weeks old. There are 12 of them - 6 are cream legbars, 3 are barnvelders and 3 are exchequer leghorns. They will be in the chick run for about another 10 days before being moved to the allotment. At that point, we will need the chick run for the next batch of ducklings which are due to hatch later this week.
