Well she's already sending them. I think they're from a different pen so maybe I'll get better luck this time. Darn. I'm setting some of my own eggs this time too.
For chicks, as soon as they have all of their body feathers they can go outside, this time of the year I leave a heat lamp on at night. I have an old kid's playhouse I have set up for growout. I'm going to have to figure something else out though, or make the roos their own house because our roo is going to live there instead of with the girls. Better for everyone that way I think. I have heard repeatedly that wood stove pellets are good for the brooders, absorb smell and compost easily. I might try it this time when my shavings are gone. I swear the medicated chick feed makes them stinkier than normal food too.
