meat chicks all out in the bus :)

The meat birds all went out Sunday, in the bus.  We had them in a plastic wading pool down cellar for the first 10 days, so it was nice to get them out.  This bunch is all fast feathering, so mosquitos are not as big an issue this year.  They seem like a better batch than last year too, easier to get on feed, none with skinny legs that just seemed slow to start...nice bunch of chicks.

Anybody else get a good bunch this year too?:coffeebusy:

Ever post a picture of the bus?  I'd be curious to see it.

Yah, kind of the solarium, grin.  As you can see, I sit on a bucket sometimes and enjoy watching them just be chickens.

Yup - I have a chair in the turkey paddock and another near the chicken houses!

Re: meat chicks all out in the bus :)

So is this one of those buses where you move them around a pasture?  Or just a bus that has become a coop?

Re: meat chicks all out in the bus :)

Bus that has become a coop.  I just open the doors when they are big enough to get up a ramp to come back in.  I only do this on days when I will be outside a fair bit, as we have foxes and I sometimes need to take pot shots at a fox with the paintball gun.  Paintballs sting enough to shoo off a fox, temporarily.:coffeebusy:
