One of our new chicks! This one is a Golden Sex Link chicken. They are so fluffy and soft at this stage. We bought 30 new chicks to help replace our aging chickens and the chickens that we lost to predators this past winter. This next year I will be looking into the idea of my own incubator as it appears that it could very quickly pay for itself! But right now we are enjoying the little cheeps coming from our mudroom…yes, I have chicks in the house! It is draft-free and I can control the temperature much easier than any other place at the moment. These chicks will be just big enough to be moved to the garage by the time our new goat kids are born…and, uhm, yes, the goat kids will spend a few days in our mudroom as well.
