Chickens move to the Grow Up Pen

Splash Wyandotte

We moved the last of the chickens in our “Broodabago” (the camper we turned into a brooder) out to the Grow Up Pen.
We now have about 100 chickens in our Grow Up Pen. We have Ameraucanas, Wyandottes that are Blue, Black, and Splash. It turns out if you breed a Blue Wyandotte rooster with a Blue Wyandotte hen you can get three different color offspring. We also have white Silkie and White Crested Black Polish. We are taking a break from hatching right now and plan to restart in July. We have sold a lot of the chickens we hatched. Lots of people are looking for laying hens. We recently traded 2 Black Polish for a 7 month old Rhode Island Red. She is the only RIR we have. Hopefully she will be Big Boys hen. Big Boy is our pet rooster. He’s mixed but we love him. He was the first chicken we ever hatched.
