chick update – week 6

The meat chickens are at six weeks of age now – and have really become quite plump and round! Today they are having as rough time as a heat wave has hit with temperatures over 33ºC. Their original yellow chick feathers are now all gone, and now sport bright white coats. They really eat like crazy now, and spend the days either lazing around, eating/drinking or play fighting. I also found a neat little mini egg hidden under the nest boxes this morning. Wonder if it could hatch a mini chicken…
