We had to make a new brooder! These babies are getting huge and they’re eating their chick feed like piglets 🙂 We used an old kitchen cabinet that we scored on a re-model job.
ABOVE: Uh oh…Sean Jr might be a rooster. He’s the only chick with red on the crest and cheek.
UPDATE: A lady in my chicken group just told me Sean Jr IS a rooster. I’m so disappointed.
I can’t keep a rooster in this neighborhood. I wouldn’t want to freak out the neighbors. It’s just too bad I don’t live on 50 acres.
PS We still haven’t built a coop.
