Pasture Chicks

Pictures don’t turn out well in the brooder, because of the dark barn and the red heat lamps, but, as you can see, we’ve added new babies to the mix!  It’s hard to believe that our now-four-week-old chicks are SO HUGE, compared to the new babies we added this evening.

We’ve added 10 Marans, who lay very dark chocolate brown eggs, and 5 white egg layers, since the contrast will be fun!  Luckily everyone seems to be getting along well.  Just a few more weeks for the first batch, and they can head out onto the pasture without a heat lamp soon!  Very excited to see them growing so much.
