Day old hens

Recommended Posts

Hi , Just wondering why you are looking for day olds? Compared to the average POL hybrid or ex batt or any other young hen, they will need quite a lot of care and attention and more importantly at this time of year they will have to be kept inside with heat until probably till springtime.


My pekin brought up a batch of day old chicks and whilst this was a lovely period in my hen keeping life it was in the middle of summer and the broody did all the looking after!


Please excuse if this is something you are familiar with :) Ax
