Hatching and Raising Chicks at My Farm

It’s always so exciting when we have babies at the farm - this time, fluffy, little chicks.

As you know, I’ve been raising chickens for many years. Not only do I love keeping them for their fresh, delicious eggs, but I also enjoy learning about the different breeds and varieties. Seven healthy chicks recently hatched in my Winter House kitchen. After hatching in a special incubator, the chicks were carefully moved to a brooder located in my stable feed room. The box brooder by GQF Manufacturing, Inc. is specifically designed to provide adequate heat, fresh air, light, food, and water. The peeps will stay there for a few weeks until they are large enough to move down to the chicken coops.

Here are some photos of the youngest residents of Cantitoe Corners, enjoy.
