New chicks are in the new brooder!

Everything was ready finally and we moved the chicks that are the starts of a replacement for one of the flocks lost in the fire to the new brooder Bradley built.  56 little chicks found their new home this afternoon.

Fifty six is a start,  soon to be replaced by about a hundred hatched in another week or so.  The genetics in these 56 are closest to the 300+ lost birds.  All the rest will be a couple generations behind them .  Right now we are just happy to be back on the road to our next flock.

The birds seemed happy to be in the open space of the new brooder,  and the children enjoyed letting them go into their new home.
