"I'm a survivor
I'm goin' make it
I will survive
Keep on survivin'
First it was frigid temps the chicks battled and then as the warmer spring air started to appear, so did a predator. A weasel to be exact. Last Friday was a devastating sight to walk into the brooder barn to the massacre of 54 chicks out of the group of 100.
But these things happen. Chickens are prey to just about everything. Its part of farming. The ups and downs come right along with the good and bad.
So here is couple pictures of our "Survivors" at 3 weeks old. As you can see they are changing so fast from the cute fuzzy chicks of a couple of weeks ago.
Their feathers are filling in. They are in the midst of their awkward phase. They are eating like crazy! And they are squirmy but inquisitive to look at themselves while I attempted to capture a photo!
