Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): A cozy starter home for little chickens in Haiku Maui

A cozy starter home for little chickens in Haiku Maui

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.

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.

I love the idea of a "chicken tractor" so the chicks can enjoy the green grass!

A chicken tractor is a great idea!  The chickens are certainly cute. It is good to know that you are taking excellent care of them.

Georgie,

 Those chicks are so cute I learned something new today. I learned that they take 6 months to lay their 1st egg!

AWE those chicks looks so cute! I love this post. It makes me happy. I think it would be great to live on a self-sufficient farm and raised your own organic food. It would be so much healthier too.

What a great little set up they have! Nicely done. 

My husband would love to have chickens someday. I'll keep this in mind.

The backyard chicken movement seems to be growing in many states.  My daughter has a pair living at her home.

How wonderful, Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 ... grow your own chicken, have plenty of  fresh eggs, grow your own fruits and vegetable.  Sounds like a pretty perfect world.
