In early May I got a few Comets at the local grain store.
They are also known as Red Sex Links
I had pre-ordered them in March.
They have been outside in my portable chicken tractor since calmer weather in late May.
So far they are still females.
I hear it is almost impossible for them to be males.
We'll see what the future brings, since 70% of all my poultry turns into males, eventually....
With all the rain last week the grass has been growing in leaps and bounds and turned their play area into a jungle.
When I move the big pen to a new area I have to chop some of the grass down to get the pen to sit evenly on the ground.
When I put the chicks into the new pen area they explore every inch and climb the big limbs I put in there for them.
They find lots of bugs to eat and spiders to torture.
Hopefully by the end of August they will start laying some eggs, if they aren't crowing by then....
Here is what they looked like as baby chicks the day I picked them up.
How are your chicks all doing ?
How many roosters did you end up with ?
