Chick Days – 18 weeks old

Now that the chickens have started laying, I have decided this will be my final post in this series. In a way, it’s like we’ve come full circle.

We have watched them grow from 4 day old fuzz ball babies living under a heat lamp in a box in our garage:

Into nearly full-grown hens laying their first eggs:

We converted an old wood shed into a chicken coop with an attached chicken run area:

And learned how to build things like nesting boxes…

…and roosting poles.

Hank attempted to eat the chicks while they were still babies living in our garage:

But the chicks survived and grew into their awkward teenage faze where they were half feathers half fuzz:

Once they were fully feathered they moved out of the garage and into the chicken coop:

We learned about their favorite treats:

Strawberries, melons, grapes, stale bread, and spinach!

And finally, we learned that chickens like to sunbathe:

I hope you have enjoyed the ‘Chick Days’ series! I’m sure the chickens will pop up now and then on the blog, just to say hi. For now, thanks for playing!

And don’t expect regular Sunday posts anymore…. πŸ™‚

  1. My friend Ellie will like this recap ~ her chicks will be here this month, I believe!Thanks for taking us through this process with you. It’s amazing how much they’ve grown and changed in such a short period of time!

  2. Ahhh all grown up!!! It was so fun to watch them!! I look forward to future Agnes shenanigan updates! Now you’ll have to come up with a new Sunday series πŸ˜‰

  3. Oh no, I love the chick updates!!! I hope they’ll stop by often!P.S. For some reason, your word verifications are harder to solve than any others I’ve seen! I find that I fail more often than I win!

    1. I’ll make sure they say hello here and there πŸ™‚ Sorry about the word verification! I took it off for a little while, but there was just too much spam. I always struggle on the word verification on Logan’s blog for some reason.
