and then there were 15


We picked up the 2nd batch of chicks - 7 cute little Rhode Island Reds (for the longest time I was calling them Long Island Reds - must've been thinking of something else?).


What a difference in size a week makes - Yikes!!


The hatchery says it will be fine to dump them all together right off the bat - we shall see - I have my doubts. But just in case I have to rescue them, I have a rubbermaid tote and another heat lamp at the ready.


The ones we got last week are starting to get feathers already - and seeing them next to the new batch - silly me for thinking they weren't eating much!!


On other news, I did gets lots done this weekend - I'll post tomorrow with what all I have gotten done - both crafting wise and farming wise.

See ya,

Kris

They certainly look different once the feathers start to grow! At this rate it won't be long until you start gettng lots of lovely eggs.
