These new chicks will be laying eggs in the spring in Haiku Maui. We're not waiting until spring to get some new chicks, we're getting them started now so we'll have eggs in time for Easter 2018. It takes about 6 months before they start to lay. These are White Rocks and Ameraucanas, and there are many more types of egg laying breeds.
Starter home for little chickens, Haiku Maui
Somebody in Waikapu had ordered day old chicks and had a lot extra, so my husband picked up 8 about a week ago. He built them a nice outdoor cage with wheels on one end so they can be moved around the lawn as needed. It's called a "chicken tractor" and they get to enjoy the fresh grass and see the sunshine every day. This is just their starter home until they're big enough to move to the chicken house down the hill, with a big yard. In the meantime, they're close to our house so we can keep an eye on them and make sure they're safe and have plenty of food and water.
