This is the third post about the chicks. They are now 2 weeks old. You can see their wings are getting feathered pretty well. Also starting to get feathers on their back. They are outgrowing the 1 quart waterer. We have lost 1, so we are down to 29. These buff orpingtons are much smaller at this age than the Cornish X Rocks we raised off this summer.
It's that time of year again! Every year about mid-October we fire up the wood furnace and it stays lit until April or so, depending on the weather. This will be our 5th winter with this stove, so we have plenty of experience with an outdoor wood furnace in case anyone is interested. I know what the advertising says and I know what the reality is. So let's get started!
