2 Week Graduation - First Day on Grass

Posted by Lynn Nye on May 5, 2015 at 5:50 AM

It's been two weeks since the first batch of chicks came and Sunday they graduated to their portable hoop shelter.

During their first two weeks - here is where we're at.


  • We had 2 losses within the first 12 hours.  We count those as 'failure to thrive'.
  • We had 1 loss at about 7 days .. .no explanation
  • We euthanized one this weekend, due to a displaced hip.
So from an 'environment' perspective we've lost one chick during their first 2 weeks on grass.  The weather finally broke.  Days in the mid 70's or so with nights in the mid 40's (or better) and the chicks are looking great!

This condition is quite limited by the reproductive system and might have several causes including a consequence of injury or abnormal the flow of blood within the testicles. Use these circumspectly however, while they may lower blood sugar levels, that is an unsatisfactory effect that face men whose blood sugar levels are properly balanced.
