Chickens Growing Up - Nearly adults!

Even with cool temperatures and sort days the chicks are growing - and growing!

Soon we will separate the surplus male cockerels from the female pullets.  We will grow them out and butcher them for our use.  

Cruel?  No, I don't see it that way.  Most birds are sexed as they hatch, ad most males are composted when a day old!  They live a full life here until they are full grown.
