I've gotta get my coop built. Posts like this just get me off on another tangent!
Is your's free-ranged or penned? I'll have to have a yard for them due to "inherited" dogs.
Ah well, congrats on some Christmas chicks! Which incubator are you using?
Thank you. In the warm months they are free ranged, but when it starts getting cold they have a BIG pen they have access to, chickens don't mind fenced yards even when they are free ranged they tend to stick to only certain parts of certain areas.
I use a Hova-bator with a fan in it and egg turner, if you want you can PM me and I will tell you the cheapest place to buy one, I don't know if I can promote a web-site openly without breaking forum rules.
I also have a vintage wood incubator that works I got that off of an auction site that I can't wait to try out!
