5/16/2014 – 10th of Late Spring

  • Baby chicks showed up this morning. Most of them are reddish but a couple are yellowish. They seem to be in good health.
  • This is the first year that I will start brooding outside. Normally I brood them inside for several weeks before moving them outside.
  • Still couldn’t get the brooder to warm up. Ended up adding a second spotlight and wrapping a sheet around the brooder. Temperature is up to 90F, but the chicks are compensating by huddling up. Since they are leaving the huddle to eat and drink I think they will be fine.
  • Been researching auto-sexing breeds again. Found a couple of pedigrees on how the original breeds were made. Definitely a long term project to look into.
