DIY Chick Brooder

It starts to feel like spring really is just around the corner when the young chicks arrive at our store.  The first batch of chicks came in the mail this Thursday.  We have Barred Rocks, Golden Sex Links and Black Australorps.  (All the Ameraucanas already found new homes.)  Plus we expect new chick deliveries every two weeks until April.

Mark, Zaki and I set up a little display of a small chick brooder you could make at home.  We even made a short video of the process.

If you’re interested in learning more about raising chicks, or if you already have a backyard flock and want to talk chickens with an expert, you’re invited to our first ever Chick Day on Saturday March 3rd.  Rob Cunningham from Coyote Creek Organic Farm will be here from 1-3pm to talk chickens.  He’s even going to give away some door prizes.  The only cost for this event is we’re asking you to bring your own chair.  We’ve got plenty of space in the back, just not plenty of seating.
