Chicks - Week 1

After one week, our 56 chicks have grown dramatically. The four turkeys and the duck have started to show their size, with the duck now standing tall over the broiler chicks. We moved them back outside after the last frost, recently. They get fresh air and sunshine in the afternoon. They are eating and drinking machines, consuming 1.5 coffee cans of feed, about two pounds of fresh grass clippings and 2 gallons of water each day. Liam loves making the rounds every day to feed the chicks.
