They are doing well out in their tractor. It's holding up well, such a simple design but sturdy. I'll have to come up with a new idea for a roof, the plywood we're using is already warping a little bit. I would love to find a sheet of metal roofing to fit.
They are eating 12 hours on, 12 off now. 24% protein food. Drinking 3 gallons of water a day. I still add the chicken vitamins to their water.
They love sunning themselves after they stuff themselves. The roos are beginning to develop their combs and wattles. There isn't a huge size difference between them and the girls, yet.
In case you can't tell, they're poopy chickens. They poop, a lot. They should probably be moved more than once a day to fresh grass. But, they thenselves stay surprisingly clean.
In other news, I have a ringleader for my escapees. This Barred Rock has taught at least 4 of her sisters to jump the fence and free range. I love to let them free range, but while we're dealing with naughty Brady, I'm trying to keep them confined.
