There are nearly 3 weeks since the chicks hatched and they’re coming along nicely.

They are well on the way to feathering up.


Five Speckled Sussex chicks. I have no idea how to sex them, so no clue yet what I have.


They’re in the barn, under the heat lamp, for the time being and I’ll move them outside into a covered run in a month or so.
