Chick relocation notes

moving new chicks to the outside brooder

Today our 2nd round of incubated chicks graduated to the outdoor brooder.

The plexiglass window is positioned to get the morning sun.

We'll keep them locked up in there for a while before we let them free range during the day and then they get locked back up at night for protection.

When is the chicken cam going to be up and running again?

Canoearoo --- Unfortunately, it looks like you're still the only one wanting the chick cam, so Mark's been focusing on other projects. I'll be posting some chick photos on our chicken blog next week, though, to tide you over. :-)
