The picture above is the chicks at 4 weeks old a weighing in at a good 3 lbs or so. Below is the chicks making their move outside last week in the beautiful 70 degree weather onto green grasses.
You can almost hear them singing the theme song to
"The Jeffersons" - "Movin' on ....out!"
as we packed up and headed to the pasture!
My goal is to have meat chicks out to pasture by 4 weeks. The first group of the growing season is usually the lastest to make the move due to wet fields, fridged temperatures or yes even snow!
While this group was a week late getting outside the weather they have had as been great!
