There they are all 24 of them (2 different groups) they are growing in leaps and bounds.... They seem to be eating "well" 3 -5 smaller coffee cans of food a day. I'd say to anyone not familiar with raising chickens start out with 5-10 peeps, cause this is a lot of work.
Not used to having 24 chickens at my feet at one time, sometimes I feel a little out numbered. The Delawares (which appear in the white color) seem to be brave and will come over and start pecking at your pant legs or shoes. We will from time-to-time, feed them from the palms of our hands, these guys can be aggressive and will actually grab skin. For the most part they are all flighty when approached for handling so letting them roam the grounds is not an option at this time. Things will definately be a litte easier when they can leave the shed!
This is a picture of what will soon be the brooder boxes. What needs to be done is sides put in between each and a top over them. We're figuring the chickens are only a few months old right now so we have a little over a month before they will even begin to lay eggs. The chicken coop is wired for electric and already has outlets, but we need to dig a trench from the main barn out to the shed for the power source.
Now, all we are lacking is The Chicken Whisperer!
