Ten Week Old Chicks Go Outside To Explore!

Posted by on December 28, 2011

Chicks Are Ready To Venture Into The Great Outdoors!

Electronet fencing with solar charger.We set up two sections of electronet fencing around the greenhouse and hooked up a new solar powered charger to the fencing.

This will help protect the chicks from predators trying to get inside the fence. Then we unzipped one section on the end of the greenhouse and let the chicks start checking out their new area.

They are pretty much fully-feathered now and are very curious to explore anything new. This is the first chance they have had to see the outdoors and feel the sunshine.

Trees Are Like A Magnet For Chicks!

Leaving a baby chick outside at night is way too tempting for night time predators, especially owls.

We put a light on inside the greenhouse to get them back inside where they are safer. Chicks are drawn to the light.


The Chicks Are Curious About Anything New!

They are curious about everything. Imagine the wonder of discovering the great outdoors for the first time.

Some are more daring than others, but once a few are brave enough to step outside it doesn’t take long for others to follow. They start scratching and looking for treats right away.
