On April 20th we picked up 5 white leghorn and 5 Wellsummer chicks from Livermore Hay and Feed. They are now 3 weeks old and can spend all day outside in our “chicken tractor”. Sadly, one of the leghorns didn’t survive her first night, but all the rest have been doing well. We picked these two breeds because they were very different from what we already have. The leghorns are good producers and will provide us with white eggs. The Wellsummers will produce very dark brown eggs.

Here are a few pictures:

White Leghorns and Wellsummer chicks have arrived!

Pretty easy to tell the two breeds apart.

Here they are at about 2 weeks. They are outside in the “chicken tractor” which is like a chicken coop on wheels.
