We are only doing one batch of broilers this year. The chicks came today. Here is the brooder all set up for them. I still had to fill the waterer and put it in. The Wonderful Neighbors picked them up at the post office for me. They had a few replacement layers in with my order. I thought it was very nice of them to pick them up.
The Wonderful Neighbors stayed to help put the chicks in the brooder. Or should I say to put them in for me. They dipped each little beak in the water as they put them in. Star is always so excited when new chicks arrive. We were trying to catch her giving kisses to the chickies.
The hatchery believes in segregation. One half of the smaller top box had their Black Sex Link chicks. The other half was the larger yellow broiler chicks.
I wonder what that chick is whispering in his ear? The two little guys would hand the baby chicks to their big sister. She would then dip the beak and put them in the brooder.
Here is the brooder full of fluff balls. This is the only time in their life that these chickens are cute.
