Meat Chickens Venture Outside
The two week old chicks have taken their first steps outside. They have been cooped in a small pen inside the sheep shed. The little door in the side is just right for them to go in and out. This yard is not very big but will be just right to raise these guys.
|"Quick! Someone's coming. Get inside."|
We held the chicks the first day but haven't handled them much since then. Being detatched is going to be important when it comes time to butcher.
It makes my heart happy that we are able to raise them this way enjoying fresh air and freedom. They are growing so fast!
