The baby chickens are now 17-20 days old and are growing so fast! Most of them are well on their way to having most of their wing feathers.
We started out with 105 and week before last lost 5 during Tropical Storm Ana. Last week we lost 3 more, 2 to a snake that got into the chicken coup and 1 to natural causes. We're now down to 97 and those 97 are keeping us busy! We feed and water them twice a day and they are always waiting and ready when mealtime comes around. They have begun to hop and jump and can even get themselves up on top of the watering and feeding jars. It's almost like they're playing king of the mountain!
Next week, it's time for a bigger home!
Hope you're enjoying our 'chicken journey!'
