Chicks out to Pasture

Our chicks have finally been moved out to the pasture.  They are in a chicken coop with a little run made or 1' by 1' wire.  Once they get a little bigger they don't have to have the 1' by 1' wire but now they are still small enough to get out of the poultry netting that is around the chicken yards.  When you first give them access to the outside they won't come out for several days, then they start to peek their heads out and by the 1st or 2nd week most of them are playing and flapping around in the sun.

We have about 70 to 80 birds out there that we are raising up for replacement breeding stock and part of this winters meat supply.
