Our Amberlink pullets are now 6 weeks old! It doesn’t seem very long ago that they were sweet, fuzzy little chicks. You can see video of their first day here.
We are getting another batch of layer chicks this week, so it was time for the Amberlinks to vacate the brooder. They were also looking a little bored in there, so it was time for them to hit the grass.
I’m not ready for them to live in the Eggmobiles yet, as I want to keep them seperate from the older hens until they begin to lay. So we built some extra Salatin-style broiler pens and put them in there for the time-being. The pullets are doing great on pasture, and it’s amazing to see how well they forage for insects, slugs and seeds.
